It's Canning Time! The apricots are waiting for me.

Our trees are loaded with these gorgeous golden fruits. Oh how I wish my darling daughters
were here to help me do the canning. It's ever so much more fun to do things with them. But
I have a strong suspicion that my true love will help me with this project. He is always willing
to pitch in, it's just getting him started. He's like the pull start on a rototiller, you have to pull
on the ropes several times to get it to go but once you get the motor going it does the job like no other machine. Let's see......I think apricot jam will be the first thing I do (how can a kitchen survive without apricot jam?) Maybe a few dried apricots for my scones and maybe some luscious apricot nectar. I think perhaps the grandchildren would love some fruit leathers.
Now all I need is the energy to get ME going.
