Preserving sunshine

Oct 20, 2012 / 5:00 am

I can’t believe it is October already. I wasn’t ready to stop eating peaches or plums, and I haven’t made all my jam yet, and the pears are ripening faster than I can poach them for my Christmas hamper gifts. One of the things I love about autumn is preserving summer’s goo
