It’s the simple things…


Deb’s raspberry, red current, gooseberry jam for breakfast.

There is nothing so comforting as bringing a little bit of home along with you when you’re living on a sailboat.

We’re lucky to have an uber-talented jam and jelly-making friend back home who gives us a care package of her delicious treats every Christmas. We hold back on opening them until we get to the boat.

The first day we open one of her jewel-coloured bottles is a big event. Today was inaugurated with her astounding raspberry, red current and gooseberry mix. The sweet, tart flavours fairly burst in our mouths.

With a steaming cup of coffee and a toasted english muffin, what a superb way to start the day. Thanks, Deb!
