* Summertime, and the living is easy. It can be even easier if you take advantage of the National Fish and Promotional Council's offer of a free leaflet, "Seafood Grilling Made Easy." The booklet contains plenty of grill recipes and tips so you don't embarrass yourself at the barbecue and end up with a big charcoal mess. For a free copy, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Seafood Grilling Made Easy, 1825 Connecticut Ave. NW, Suite 620, Washington, D.C. 20235.
* If you know that Flush Darjeeling, Golden Dragon Oolong and Lung Ching Dragonwell Green are all teas, then you'll probably want to know about the Tea Quarterly, a little magazine devoted to tea. A subscription ($20 a year) is available from: Tea Quarterly, 2210 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 634, Santa Monica, Calif. 90403, or call (213) 479-7370.
* You don't even think of making homemade jams and jellies because it takes too much time? Not if you use the three-step method from Sure.Jell, a fruit pectin. Three-step jams and jellies take fewer than 45 minutes and require no special equipment. If you'd like to know more about this time-saving method, write for a free copy of the three-step jam and jelly recipe booklet to: Sure.Jell Starter Kit, P.O. Box 3366, Kankakee, Ill. 60902.
