A few summers ago I made plum preserves, and my boyfriend loved them. I only made six or eight pints of them, so I doled them out slowly to make them last. He sure looked sad when I presented him with the last jar. Despite his efforts to make it last as long as he could, there came a day when the last jar was just plain empty.
This valentines day I made him the granola cookies (of course!), but I also surprised him with three jars of plum preserves ... and let me tell you ... you have not lived until you have had homemade plum preserves on yogurt, vanilla ice cream, or frozen vanilla yogurt!
