|The jam cupboard|
The list includes;
- Cambridge gage
- Raspberry & tayberry
- Sweet chilli
- Red onion marmalade
- Green tomato chutney
and so it goes on. But why? Do I have a mean streak and can't abide waste? The orchard where we walk Mortimer has an abundance of elderberry trees. I kept eying up the berries - such a lovely colour. Surely I could make something.....
Next thing I know
They're in the preserving pan
|Thank heavens for extractor fans|
|Honestly officer, it's only elderberries!|
Apparently elderberry jelly is really good with cold meats(so great for me - the vegetarian).
So if anyone could shed light on this obsession I'd be grateful.
Until next time
P.S. I've got it! 42 jars in the cupboard, 43 is the meaning of life - where are those pears?!
