Putting up

Wintertime has its own seasonal events, some nicer than others.
The more pleasant stuff I put up with includes...

...local hand-picked persimmons.

A little something to go with 5 pounds of those fresh persimmons? Add 1/4 tsp ascorbic acid per pint.

Yield: 5 pints brandied persimmons.

20% tithed to the tree's owner.

...and local hand-picked kumquats. Really big ones! at least twice the size of those at the market.

Lots of time and patience is needed to slice and seed them. I let them soak for at least a day, then add lots of sugar.

Yield: 10C marmalade.

30% tithed to the tree's owner and family.
