From what I gather IHM, you lean because of the wine idea!


You don't know me DD, yet you know me so well. :wink:  :lol:


Evidence gathering we called it!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Congratulations JR!

I'm having a go at jam right now for the very first time ever too. Hoping it'll be a lifelong habit with an abundance of jam to give away and enjoy!

Trying organic gardening. Hoping to stick to it.

I'm not a jam expert, by any means, always making mistakes, but I used all old jars of various shapes and sizes in 2003 for my rhubarb and ginger jam, sterilised the clean jars in as hot a water as I could manage, put in the hot jam, put the lids on and when it was a bit cooler, tightened the lids, and I am still eating it now, got 2 jars left as OH doesn't like it.  You can hear the lids popping as they make a vacuum.

My strawberry jam last year was superb, even if I do say so myself, but the ones I made yesterday, didn't set as well as I thought, but then I realised, I'd forgot to add a knob of butter.  Does anyone know if that's why? When I put a little of the jam on a cold plate and put it in fridge, it went crinkly a bit.
