It's that time of year again...

The time of year when I find myself hunched over a boiling pan of jewel coloured liquid (garnet tonight) frantically trying to read a sugar thermometer through the swirling steam. Yes its finally cool enough to consider making jams,  jellies,  and marmalades again. There's not much that I really like about the autumn but preserving is one of the few things that reconcile me to the end of summer. Time to fall in love with Diana Henry and Pam Corbin all over again.


  1. Good luck! Isn't 'garnet' just a lovely, lovely image?

  2. This sounds a lovely thing to do. I was presented with a pot of plum jam by a friend's eight-year-old at the weekend, very proud of helping her mum to make it and labelled with her name. It's delicious, and I'm sure yours will be too.
