Jam and Muffins…

At last I got round to making my first batch of jam this year. jam 004

I decided to make strawberry jam for a change.

I got my Strawberries from the Knights hill farm shop. They sell  slightly imperfect ones especially for jam making.

This year making the jam was so much easier as I had got myself a proper preserving pan, so I had no mess to cjam 002lean up like last year.

Think I should also get myself a Preserving thermometer  too. 

Luckily this seems to have set just right.

I had quite a few left over strawberries, so I used them to make fresh strawberry and cream muffins, in between muffins the boys told me how delicious they were πŸ™‚

Now I need to go out blackberry picking next week so I can make my blackberry and apple jam too.

    I made jam for the first time last week. Crab apple jelly from scrumped fruits. Its lovely and worked really well and as I used brown sugar its a crystal clear golden copper colour..

    “fresh strawberry and cream muffins”…they look stupendous! My tummy’s rumbling even now. Not at all sure how good your blog is for my diet!! LOL

    [Thinks] Can you have fattening and non-fattening blogs…? Should blogs post a nutritional content advisor πŸ˜‰ (ooops….given myself yet another idea for a post…!)
