Produce / Jam

Summer is so delicious.  I've been getting little harvests from Sina's garden, and these heirloom tomatoes were one of the best.

Also, from the supermarket:  Strange greens.  I thought they were a kind of watercress, but they were very mild.  I didn't know what to do with them, so I just put some olive oil and lemon juice on them and ate them like a salad green.

I also picked up some tiny sour grapes, since they were very cute and $0.99/lb.

Inspired by a distant memory of gooseberry jam from when I lived in England, I ended up making jam out of these sour little grapes: approximately 1.75 c grapes, 1/2 c water, and 6 TB sugar, pinch cinnamon, simmered for a long while. Still quite tart, but nice-- like an apple pie made with green apples.
