Since I haven’t done any prints for a long time I decided to make room on my desk and use it as a kind of printmaking studio (although a very small one…). I bought a good roller, new linocut colours and of course printing plates and started to carve. I just love the versatility of printmaking – you never really know what you get. You can print over a boring piece and suddenly it turns out to be really interesting. It’s just great!
I just love pumpkins in all variations: pumpkin soup, pumpkin cake, roasted pumpkin pieces on a salad or pumpkin jam.
It’s the first time I tried this delicious recipe:
half of a hokkaido pumpkin (butternut would also be delicious)
jam sugar (1:3)
1 vanilla pod
Chop the pumpkin and the apple into small pieces and put them into a big pot. Let them boil together with some apple juice, some cinnamon and the vanilla pod (split it open and scrape the seeds). Mash everything with a mixer. Then add the jam sugar while stirring the jam all the time. Let it boil for three more minutes, then pour the jam into prepared jam jars and put them upside down for a few minutes.
