Things are just starting to get interesting here, to be fair I thought it would happen a lot sooner, but now and only now am I reaching the back of some of the cupboards and finding things that I had either forgotten about, or put to the back of my mind for the time being while we have been living off the freshly harvested stuff, and the things from the freezer in my bid to empty it ready for the harvests to go in.
The other day I found these, a tin of strawberry jam base and an almost full bag of jam sugar.
As I had just picked a surprise late harvest of Blueberries from the net tunnel, and I knew there was a tub of mixed strawberries and raspberries in the big freezer, I knew straight away what I would make ....
... a few jars of mixed berry jam.
I like the feeling of pulling things in from here and there and making something useful and tasty out of them. So these along with the other hundred or so jars of preserves (might be a slight exaggeration, I shall have to count) should last us easily through this Winter and beyond.
