I am a very poor blogger at the moment.
The school summer holidays march on, going so faster than I would like.
French Fancy kind of day.
And all that.
To help the day along.
Is pretty much all we did today.
Eight pots of strawberry and three pots of raspberry and a strong urge to put jam on everything!
And fresh raspberries and strawberries with natural yoghurt for breakfast every morning. I do love summer fruit.
I have now picked two large tubs of blackberries from the garden and the apples are starting to fall from the tree so more jam making is planned – blackberry and apple – or windfall jam as I labelled it last year. A classic combination, I do equal weight of fruit and it has proved popular with OH and Flo. I have been picking the blackberries every day for a week. I get a small bowlful each day and put them in the freezer. There is enough now to make a few pots. We never seem to eat puddings like crumbles or pies in the colder weather so I would rather make up lots of jam as I know that will get used and it is useful to have lots of pots of homemade jam to pad-out Christmas gift bags.
I hope you are all having a good week.
