jam today


and a lovely rolling boil to you.  Made some summer fruit jam with blackcurrants, raspberries and tayberries from the garden.    Set first time.  ha.

For the record

1lb blackcurrants, 2lbs mixed raspberries and tayberries. 1 pint water. 4 lbs sugar. No lemon juice. Soften the blackcurrants in the water, simmering for about 45 mins. Then add the other fruit and soften until bursting -then add the sugar,boil, bingo.

Also started the first hydrangea wreath as the first heads I cut are now dry enough to work with.  I think I am going to try to finish this one with some really deep pink heads from last year if they aren't too dry.  Will keep you posted.
