Preserves on Parade
« on: August 01, 2016, 19:57 »
A 'Show us your makes' thread to go with the baking one  :)  Its that time of year and fingers are twitching towards pans and jars, so whether you're canning or jamming, pickling or preserving, we want to see what you've been up to  :D

A small batch to start - lemon marmalade I made today.  From the spoon licking I did earlier, it is delicious and I can't wait to dig into these jars. 



I had to go into town today and I found some bargain aubergines on my travels, so Val's Hot Aubergine Chutney is on my 'to do' list tomorrow  :D

I missed that one Snowdrops - homemade cherry jam sounds delicious :D 

I've been busy as well. 

Val's Hot Aubergine Chutney, which is a lovely colour and made the kitchen smell wonderful as it cooked



Some garden pickles and an apple and lemon jelly with chilli and coriander



I've made another 2 jars of pickles since and pressed the dehydrator into service for a big jar of dried mint as well  :)

All looking luscious --- I'll be adding to the gallery soon when I have cleared up the hot vinegar on the kitchen floor and had a little lie down (or a trip to the tip with Mr S seems more likely tbh -- not with my jars, with garage junk he had to move for me to actually get to my jars lol)

Is the bean and carrot pickle in the recipe section. Watched country file and a man up in Scotland had all his produce pickled including carrots to see him through winter. Did not think you could pickle them, shows how much i know.

No not yet.

Here is my fig jam. Never thought I would have enough figs to make jam but it is a bumper year here!

Where did you get a recipe Sunny?  We also have a lot of figs here but don't particularly like them fresh.  Could try them as jam as we like the ones you get 'at that time of year'.  :D

That fig jam looks glorious  :D

I've got itchy fingers again as I found a recipe for tomato jelly with basil.  That sounds so nice I might just have to make some  :)

Aaaah ... I have basil. I have tomatoes. I hadn't thought of a tomato jelly. Glad you did!!
