Fresh Plum Jam at Hacienda Eco-Domes

Betty’s Freshly Made Plum Jam

So today we picked the plums off the trees at the Hacienda Eco-Dome orchards.  Our resident gourmet chef, Betty Verduzco, did her magic in the main kitchen and turned these lovely fruits into delicious jam.

The taste actually has a surprising Merlot grape tone.  It’s bizarre.  But I guess it’s appropriate for here in the wine valley.

I am a writer, musician, performer, and producer. Over the last 10 years, I have been working on making music that matters at I love to write stuff that inspires me, moves me…makes me want to get up and shout. I love living the inspired life. I hope it comes through in my music. My background in music? I saw Elvis when I was a kid. Does that count? I also played the Nursing home circuit when I was 9. I toured with my turntable and lip-synced for the fans. It was a great way to start. I have also been in an underground punk rock band (Twisted Nixon 1996-2002). I owned a record label producing the 3rd Wave SKA band The Skeletones. But now, I am pushing my personal artistic boundaries into the 21st century creating diverse music. I also engage around the world as a global social justice warrior and political activist and syndicated writer with over 500 articles published around the world on matters of politics, foreign policy, and human rights. As of 2020, I have over 100 songs written and produced. My music is available on all digital platforms.
