its that time of year again JAM TIME ! but with the weather this bad i havent been to the pick your own ( i doubt they have much ripe anyway
i had some fruit that i forgot about in the fridge including a punnet of strawbs from the local shop, a very
ripe mango and not enuff rhubarb for a crumble so i got out me sugar and a few jars from the horde on top of the kitchen cupboard and set to jammy work.
chop, ,stir, boil, BINGO!
strawberry/mango delicate and less sickly than plain strawb
ginger and rhubarb quite soft set but oh so lovely on toast
no mystery to the recipes just equal fruit to sugar ( mine had pectin in the sugar) ,boil it all up till its at the setting point ( wrinkles on a cold plate) pot into hot sterile jars, add lids and leave to cool ! nom !
