This poem made me start writing again.
Yield: 20 ounces jam
Time: 1 hour
Heavy bottomed pot
20 ounce jar
1 pound grapes
8 ounces sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1. Cut the grapes in half and place in a blender. Blend until the grapes are completely blended, skin and all.
2. Put the blended grapes, sugar and lemon juice in a heavy bottom pot.
3. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat and boil until thick enough to coat a spoon. This will take about 25 to 35 minutes depending on the moisture content in the grapes and the heat.
4. Pour into a jar and let cool completely in the fridge.
Testing Jam Consistency: I like to keep a baking sheet in the freezer while boiling jam. When the jam is thick and coats a spoon, place a little jam on the sheet and place back in the freezer for a minute or two. Remove and check the consistency. The jam should feel cool or cold. If it is thick like jam, it’s ready to go. If it’s still thin, leave it to boil a little longer.
Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator. It should last 1 to 2 weeks.
Choose any fruit you’d like. Be careful though as the boiling times and the sugar will change.
This recipe can act as the base for many different jams, jellies or preserves.

Wonder if they think they are in womb again
babies can swim, yet my grown non-swimming ass just wades in the water
is this cgi?
if it isnt, this is kinda scary
nope, that’s real. babies are born knowing “how” to swim. it’s like any other skill if not used frequently, you lose it.
This is scary, though. I mean, when you’re in the womb, you’re breathing through your umbilical cord, aren’t you? And one of the reasons babies cry at birth is the shock of breathing through their noses and mouths for the first time (correct me if I’m wrong).
But it explains why infants are naturally-inclined toward water. I wish my mom had known that. She can’t swim.
ahhhh look at the little one on the top left wiggling their little legs like a merperson! My ovaries cannot even
Am I the only one who thinks of Nirvana when they see this?
^^ Thank you!
Aha my first thought as well
Babies automatically know to hold their breath under water too
Dude I’ve always known how to swim I can’t remember no point that I have ever not known
