Good afternoon, how are you this Tuesday?
Haven't the storms been dreadful?
Luckily we fared better than most but the road ours leads on to is still shut due to a hole. Scary!
Today I am sharing this.....
It's that time of the year again!
We went fruit picking on Sunday and got rather a lot of raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and peas. Strange combination!
I have frozen some for desserts, baking and smoothies and then made some raspberry jam. It has got to be the easiest jam to make but what a mess it makes when your pan isn't as big as it should be! Whoops.
The recipe should be fruit and sugar in equal quantities plus the juice of a large lemon, boiled till setting temperature (105c). I like to play around with it by reducing the sugar till the jam is quite sharp, 'cause that's the way I like it. Ahar!
It probably won't be everyone's cup of tea but the beauty of making it for the family is to make it how I want to.
My lesson from this years jam session, next year I think I might just have to invest in a proper jam making pan with high sides and therefore the sticky mess will be averted!
My tags are made using SU stamp set Friendship preserves and the matching dies.
I hope you are enjoying your Tuesday, it is a bit dreich here but much better than it was yesterday.
I'm away now to get some paint to finish my hall, the velux window has been refitted properly and the new plasterboard is sanded ready for paint. What colour to go?! MMMMM.
Catch you tomorrow. x
