And then there was…



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.

Until tomorrow…
