Berry Season

19 Jul

Suddenly there are not enough empty glass jars in the house, nor lids. Those which are pairs rattle around in the dishwasher while that familiar, comforting scent of bubbling strawberries and sugar (so much! one’s teeth!) rolls out the back door and into the garden in great, billowing clouds.

The strawberry is fine. The gooseberry and elderflower, hmmmm, not so much. (Must not make jam while on the phone must not make jam while on the phone must not make jam while on the phone must not make jam while on the phone…)

I am certain this jam is delicious, however. And the tumblr page is nice: London Borough of Jam.

This looks pretty good, too.

    Going through a jar of Skinny-Dipper konfyt from the Karoo – nectarines and granadilla. Yum

      Konfyt! That sounds delicious. I have been eeking out the last of some preserved figs from Melissa’s (http://melissas.co.za/products/?category=3) but have been wondering if the overhanging figs on a tree a few streets away might be, erm, foraged.
