Dear Miss Eleanor,
Before you were born, we had a nice long pre-baby weekend.
We made big breakfasts, ate doughnuts, went to farmer's market, and planted bulbs.
The day before you were born, I looked like this:
And I made this jam with the last of the fall fruit:
Hot Pepper Raspberry Jam
4 c. raspberries
1 large red bell pepper
8 c. sugar
Put all your fruit and crushed berries in a pot with a heavy bottom.
