Picked right from their trees, I had a bucket load of the cutest little pears and apples in my kitchen, patiently waiting for me to cook something tasty and creative.
With our cozy abode to myself, I peeled, simmered and mushed up a pot of spiced chai apple-pear jam. The aroma that came from the large pot was incredible. I could taste every spoonful of cinnamon and nutmeg.
I will admit though, the best part about the process was eagerly waiting for the lids to pop, confirming the seal. This quiet little pop made me giggle every time. Ha!
