Everyday Creating #10 #Jam
The last couple of days have all been about jam making. On Tuesday we spent the morning at our allotment picking the last of the strawberries, the gooseberries and half of the blackcurrants. I then spent the afternoon washing and taking the little stalks off. Yesterday morning I got started on making the jam. I'm always shocked at the amount of sugar that goes into making jam but both blackcurrant and gooseberry jams are easy to make due to their fairly high pectin levels. We now have 24 pots of delicious homemade jam. Now to pick the other half of the blackcurrants before the birds spot them and clear the bushes for me.
