On-the-Spot Jam

No, it's not the latest George Clinton rump-shaker.

I started the day by asking for TWO peanut butter and jelly sandwiches this morning, because I knew I didn't have any leftovers. I did have a cut up pineapple, and so, the plan was- the pineapple + one sandwich for breakfast, then the other sandwich for lunch + whatever miscellaneous fruit sittin' on my desk.

Instead, I ate it all at breakfast. Well- not all at once, but over the course of a few hours. And, um, not exactly all of it, I still had apricots on my desk, plus one orange. Nevertheless, by lunch-time, I wanted more to eat. Or, I wanted to eat more. Whatever.

So, I popped over to the store and bought a seeded baguette, plus two thingees of raspberries. Now, I know what you're thinking, and I have to tell you, you're right: I shoved the baguette full of those sweet 'n' juicy raspberries, and it was just like bread with jam. Except no sugar, no pectin, no grape juice added, no corn syrup...

Did you ever think about corn syrup? I mean, really think about it? Look- picture an ear of corn, alright? Now- imagine what you have to do to it to get sugar out... it boggles the mind.
