I've got hives... No, not the buzz buzz honey making kind of hives, but like, real hives. I conducted an experiment. Last year, I made peach jam. If you were following my blog back then, you would remember a sad day in my world. I made a zillion jars of peach jam and ate it like crazy. Well, my scientific self decided to see if it was truly an amount thing that gave me hives last year, or if I am truly allergic... The verdict, I am truly allergic. Don't worry too much. The bumps don't really itch, unless I am thinking about them, and they aren't on my face this time, but on my hands and arms.
So speaking of jam, yesterday I made rose petal jelly. I got the recipe at The Gardener of Eden. I honestly don't know how it tastes yet, since I am waiting for my hives to go away so I can really test and see if it is the brand of pectin I am using :) Always the scientist... I am pretty sure it turned out well... The color is beautiful, it gelled up nicely, and smells really good too. I will definitely be reporting on the flavor soon!
