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  Cry ).

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 Kiss

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 !

Those look so tasty, I had big plans to grow berries and other jam making fruits this season, but I haven't earned my green thumb yet and I didn't get enough fruit to make any jam.
