Alex identified the country down to the Balkans but did not guess Croatia

Taste Test – Galil Strawberry Preserve

In my more mobile years I was quite the avid forager and berry picker. I used to make jams and jellies from a variety of different berries so was craving a nice preserve apart from the ones you can get in the grocery store. I saw this product on the Galil website and have been impressed with their other products so gave it a try.

The best way to evaluate a good preserve or jam is on a nice piece of toasted bread

Disappointing although as good or better than any supermarket brand it was not up to the homemade product

Coins and Currency Club – Belarus

The featured country in this month’s Coin and Currency Subscription Box is Belarus. Belarus is officially called the Republic of Belarus. It is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe. It is bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. Covering an area of 80,200 square miles and with a population of 9.2 million, Belarus is the 13th largest country in Europe. The capital and largest city is Minsk. Alex came close to guessing the country with the clues provided guessing Eastern Europe but could not remember the name Belarus.
