I'm enjoying the scent of orange blossoms as I walk to Trader Joe's to
buy another dozen eggs!

So? I enjoy that year around. My girlfriend buys that potpourri
****. Besides, it's the same smell as the rotten orange peels in my
garbage.

Wrong. I suspect you have never smelled real orange blossoms.

Well, since I live in Toledo where they grow no oranges, you're
probably right. But I've got some hand cream that the label says
smells like orange blossoms. But I'll bet you've never smelled real
apple blossoms or cherry blossoms.

Two sociopaths bonding, how charming. Hey, Huggies,
what does a pack of diapers smell like when you open them?


I wouldn't know. But I sure you know what a new jar of mayo smells
like. What's an old jar of mayo that's been sitting in the sun for
days smell like?


Tony Packos.

They grow both around here, but I've never been anywhere when/where they
were blooming. Apricot blossoms don't have much smell. We bought the
dwarf orange just for the smell of the blossoms, which is fortunate --
the most oranges we ever got: 8. Most years: 0-1. Lagniappe.


My neighbor had an apricot tree and my mother made the best apricot
preserves. Smuckers makes them almost as good as my mother's.

We had a plum tree in our backyard and the blossoms had very little
fragrance. But the cherry trees had a wonderous fragrance, and apple
blossoms smell like apples, but much more intense.


We had two apricot trees when I was a kid. One had small delicious
apricots and the other had large relatively tasteless ones which could
be pickled (sugar/cinnamon/cloves) like peaches. We also had a Santa
Rosa plum tree, which had wonderful-for-eating plums and massive amounts
for jam/jelly/preserves.


Try the Smuckers Red Plum Jelly. It's one of my favorite jellies.
We had a plum tree so we had plenty of plums. A lot of which was used
to make plum brandy, (slivovitz.)

It's hard to find SR plums in the stores, and the apricots are equally
unimpressive. I didn't appreciate this stuff when I was a kid -- it was
just the stuff that we always had a lot of because Grandma made it. A
couple of years ago we bought a couple of jars of homemade plum jam at
an estate sale that the stupid heirs sold for a pittance. I hope their
Grandma cut the little assholes out of the will.

I bought some at Walmart (it's hard to find -- I had to order it) to
make plum sauce for my homemade mushu pork. OK, but definitely not the
same.

Grandma also made plum pudding, which was a lot like fruitcake, but better.

Smuckers Red Plum jelly is easy to find on Amazon. Too bad you can't
get slivovitz on Amazon.
