It's that time of year again when there is an abundance of fruit, berries and vegetables. I have been very busy making jams and preserves with everything and anything I can find.
We went berry picking in the forest the other day and came back with a kilo of blueberries and a kilo of blackberries. It is a joy to be able to go for a walk and come back with such delights. I made more blueberry jam, and I picked some raspberries to go with blackberries and made a very delicious mixed berry jam.
This year I have made all the favourite vegetable preserves from pickled gherkins, tomato chutney, sweet courgette relish, plum chutney and a special request from my big girl, piccalilli. All the recipes can be found under Preserves.
