Brian isn't keen on my jam, he has a thing about this scottish company who, I must say, do make very nice jam, and they come in Żlb jars.  I don't eat much jam at the moment, so I usually give my excess jars away on Freegle.  I'm not going to make much wine either at the moment, so may give most of my wine bottles away too.

Shame you weren't nearer BobE, I would have gladly given you some.  Although these ones are round, they do stack well too!

Thank you for the thought Grannie.  You could lay down some wine for a long time.  Just tuck it away someware.

Equipment has arrived.
The new jars are in the box, one is out next to the coffee mug.  They are quite diddy.
I'll try to get a better shot before I start.  I need to buy sugar and Meths first.

Wine and diets don't work well together, but you look pretty trim in your picture.

Ahhhh, that picture is of me 27 years ago when I lost 5stone with weightwatchers.  It is to remind me of what I DID look like, and I know I will never look quite as good as that again, being an ugly old *** now, but nearly 3 stone down.  Only 4 to go!   :lol: ;)

And yes, I do have to watch what I drink now.  If I'm lucky, one glass of wine Friday and Saturday night, or if no wine, then a lager and lime or a shandy.  I can make a can of lager last 2 nights, how's that?  But I am going off topic here!   Sorry!

I think this thread has run its course.  When I make my first jam I will try to document it and start a new thread.  Unless its an embarrasing disaster.

Hope you are pleased with your first results BobE.  I love it when my jam comes out right, but I do have mistakes where sometimes it doesn't set enough no matter what I do to it, and others like my lovely plum jam once that I had to cut into chunks!  :lol:

I'm going to follow "Vals" book to the letter.  Even the tests.  I'll try to post what takes place.
