There SHOULD be more fic. Derek with a fig tree in his yard, Derek with an excess of apricots, Derek googling MY BOYFRIEND BOUGHT TWO CRATES OF STRAWBERRIES, and then he finds a website and orders some supplies and it’s NONSTOP JAM.
HE HAS MASON JARS. and like stiles discovers the JAM ROOM. and derek comes home to stiles on the ground his shirt covered in red and streaks of dark crimson on his mouth and derek think OH NO. but really stiles is having a jam food baby after raiding derek’s jam room storage
Jam. Pickles. Canning of all kinds. Everyone gets fancy salsas and marmalades and watermelon rind pickles for their birthdays, jars with fancy labels hand-written in pretty script, because Derek has really pretty handwriting.
homemade vanilla extract for christmas and peanut brittle for new year’s. derek has those handmade labels stuck with gingham washi tape on all his mason jars
Derek has a digital subscription to Martha Stewart Living. He denies it, but Stiles saw him reading it in bed once.
