Friends, can we talk here? This jelly....OhhEmmGeeeee......THIS JELLY!!

Summer is hanging on here, or should I say it has finally gotten here? We have been dealing with temps in the 90's! Tell me this Washingtonian hasn't been dying. When I lived in So Cal I could deal with heat. But now? Holy crap! I am so acclimated that 80 has me panting like a dog. When it is in the 90's I am sitting in front of the fan melting like an ice cube in the Sahara!! 

My son moved and had his old window air conditioner lying around, so we loaded it up and brought it over here.

THANK.THE.LAWD!!

We had that baby cranked up to sub zero with fans blasting it into the living room like Mr Freeze on steroids! The dogs were battling it out with us for the prime real estate, which was the sofa, because that was the best place to feel the cold air. It was like musical chairs. One person got up, and another body hopped in. I went to the kitchen and came back to find Rocky, our boxer, sitting in my place. He looked at me like "Move your meat, lose your seat"  

I of course let him sit there #spoiledmuch

My consolation? Heading back into the kitchen to devour more of this delicious jelly!

Although I may have been seen eating it by the spoonful, it really is perfection on a thick piece of toast. Of course that adds carbs, but who cares when it tastes this damn good??

This recipe is perfect for my vegan peeps too because it uses raw agave for that extra boost of sweetness.

So get out and grab some of those delicious cantaloupes before they are gone, and make a butt ton of this jelly!! 

Hint - it freezes really well, just put it in plastic containers. I went and bought some of those Glad containers just for that reason. Now I can enjoy a bit of summer in the middle of winter!!
