Dhriti from Australia sent me this email a little while back:
I just wanted to let you know that thanks to your great blogs about
jam, jam and more jam, you have inspired me to make some jam!
I live on New Govardhana in Australia, it is a beautiful 800 hectare
farm, we have a wonderful organic orange orchard and i was watching
all the oranges fall to the ground and we couldn’t eat them all. It
was then that I remembered you (its weird, i know – i mean i don’t
even know you and i find myself thinking that you would love these
Anyway to cut along story short i started today making 150 jars of
orange marmalade to put in this years Kalashes for the Janmastami
Abhisheka sponsors. I did alot of research into perfecting the recipe
and it tastes and looks delicious.
Here’s a photo of Dhriti’s marmalade beautifully arranged at her temple. These jams were given as thank you gifts to donors at one of the temple festivals. Personally, I know how hard she must have worked to make all this jam. I am sure the recipients of the marmalade will enjoy their human made treat, but I am not so sure if they will fully understand all the time and love that went into each jar.
