No, we didn’t make jam today. We did start wedding cakes class today !! This is something I’m really interested in.
It was a pretty easy day. We baked a biscuit cake (whipped egg yolks and sugar folded into pastry flour and meringue).
And made Italian meringue buttercream.
Tomorrow, we pipe.
About two weeks ago I was able to find Concord grapes. I wish I had stocked up, because they’re so good; they taste like sweet tarts. If I have any time after my stage tomorrow, I’m going to the farmers’ market to see if they’re still there.
I love Concord grapes!
I made a quick jam. I didn’t use pectin – only grapes and sugar. I boiled the mixture until it was thickened and reduced, before straining out the seeds.
Now if I made some peanut butter I could have one good pb&j.
