Had a good little loaf of bakery bread yesterday and decided to stop being so lazy and make my own. So Mac got my breadmaker out and I made a loaf of crusty French bread. The top didn't get as dark as I thought it should and to my taste it's just a tad salty, but all in all not too bad.
Then to go with the bread I made Blackberry Jam. I got the recipe from Amazon's Daily Blog page and they said it was originally a BBC recipe. Basically you cook blackberries and sugar together in the microwave and seal the results in little jars. Looks good, tastes pretty good, but rather seedy, I may make some more and strain some of the seeds out.
With the left-over berries I made a kind of cobbler and we'll be eating that with ice cream tonight.
A nice way to spend the morning.
