Made my homemade jelly last night. Better than store bought for a number of reasons — no added cane sugar and mine includes omega 3 fats from chia seeds, which don’t really have much taste. You put chia seeds into water and they swell up and create a dough-like substance that’s sticky. Then you buy frozen fruit. I like the organic strawberries/banana blend. Put the frozen fruit into the chia seeds mixture and crush with a potato masher. You have your jelly with no added sugar, all the natural fiber from the strawberries and bananas, and the healthy boost from omega 3 fat. So much better than store bought, which has no omega 3 fat, is usually loaded with added sugar (usually sugar cane), and has all the fiber stripped away.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
