This weekend I took on the first preserving task of the year, marmalade. Over the years I have tried different methods, but today I took each step of the journey in a slow and exact manor. Resulting in a rather lovely, mellow batch with not to many slices, non too thick, and not lots of pips. In all I managed 15 jars of various sizes.
I enjoyed taking my time, being in the moment. Some may say a moving meditation, I may say, made with love. So often we rush around trying to fit as much as we can, I am totally guilty of this, but every now and then I just seem to get it. In the world of pis there are plenty of affirmations to remind us, but its not so easy.
