Pancake Tuesday

This article is an adaptation of one published in the King’s Tribune in June 2012 - Titled Simple Pleasures - Pancakes and Strawberry Jam.

At the time I was challenged by the idea of writing about Strawberry Jam without writing also about one of the best vehicles to consume it — Pancakes. I had been meaning to write about making Pancakes for ever so long, repeatedly missing the glaringly obvious Shrove Tuesday opportunity for February publications;  perhaps because there is always so much fresh produce to write about in the Summertime.  More recently, I have discovered the pleasures of very fine Maple Syrup from the State of Vermont, USA.  I am afraid for this reason, you will have to stand by for your Strawberry Jam Recipe.
