Gen­er­ous with jelly

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

I was rid­ing my horse along the trails in Birds Hill park on Labour Day when I en­coun­tered a gen­tle­man pick­ing wild plums. He in­tro­duced him­self as John, and as we chat­ted I learned he was a pre­serves afi­cionado and en­joyed mak­ing pre­serves out of a num­ber of berries and fruits. I ad­mit­ted I had never tried plum jelly be­fore, and he kindly of­fered to leave me a sam­ple the fol­low­ing week at a cer­tain spot off the path. The next week, I found he had left me not one but three dif­fer­ent kinds of jelly: plum, grape and cran­berry. I want to let John know how grate­ful I am he took the time to ex­pand my jelly reper­toire, and that I will in­deed re­turn the jars next Labour Day week­end.
