Strawberry Jam

First jam of the season. ¬†Strawberry Jam using Jam sugar to ensure enough pectin. For the next batch I’ll use Blackcurrants rather than Jam Sugar for the pectin.


7 and a half Jars……. yum

Elderflower Cordial

The elder is very late coming into flower this year. Fortunately it was a sunny day when I picked these. 24hours and a lovely tasting cordial.

I used this recipe, although I have tried several all with a similar result

Is this Normal?
