I advise anyone who fancies jam making to buy a jam thermometer...........it takes all the guesswork out of it  ;)

Got one a couple of years ago, been a real god-send, wouldn't be without it.

They're not expensive, about 3 quid upwards on flea-bay.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

If you want cheap blackberries, they're only £7.47 a kilo in Tesc*.

Bargain.



.......and I'll bet there are lazy so and so's who will buy them. >:(

Funny thing is that one of the best blackberrying spots is right by T's carpark by the canal  :lol: :lol: :lol:

You will be totally hooked now, everyone will get hampers of preserves for Christmas. :) Val's book is excellent, I've made loads of her recipes.
