A client gave me a bag full of beautiful organic grown lemons so I decided to make some jam.

 

Lemon Jam


Wash the lemons and cut them together with the skin into lemon slice(remove the lemon pits).
Pour water over lemon pieces and leave them like this over night.
Next day, cook them to boil in low heat for about 1 hour.
Pour sugar into lemons and stir it all the way, so sugar melts. Let it boil for 15 minutes more to thicken
Pour hot fruit jam in clean and warm jam jars and seal them.  
THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
