I managed to get Vintage Rose up and running and have not stopped running myself since then, so have not had much time to blog on Vintage Rose ... such is life!!
During late March and April (which is really harvest time in the Southern hemisphere), I took to trying out all sorts of jams and preserve making. I'd always felt that jam making was filled with mystery - that this was something that only your grandmother or maybe mother could accomplish. I needed to bust this myth or at least know that I tried.
And what a wonderful experience it turned out to be!! Jam making is dead easy - it's really all about the best quality fruit you can get, weight of fruit vs. sugar vs. water, boil until thick and bottle - voila - that simple!!!!!!!!!
Well okay, some are simpler than others' to make and yes, I did learn a few don'ts and a few worth trying, DO's. I even tried making apricot jam out of dried apricots - just a easy- and it makes a delicious fruity jam!
Anyone for scones and tea?
