Blackcurrants + a little Sugar = Microwave Jam!

Advantages: Freshly picked taste! low sugar; No slaving over preserving pans; less washingup; makes creative gifts.
Disadvantages: Need Microwave; your fingers get filthy topping/tailing; the jam gets eaten too quickly

Two years ago, I had finally managed to pick all the blackcurrants from the bushes in my front garden! It was a backbreaking job to "top and tail" all the blackcurrants - it was a bumper crop for five bushes. Some were so small that the berries were alm ...

"I'm in a right pickle"

Advantages: Tastes delightful
Disadvantages: You smell like a pickled granny

Black and blue jam

Advantages: Lovely flavour
Disadvantages: can be expensive to make

We went blackberry picking on Saturday as we are fortunate enough to have quite a few areas of unspoiled (ie not near a road) blackberry bushes around here. After making several batches of blackberry jam (my preserving pan is very old and has been inhe ...

Lemon curd and not an E number in sight

Advantages: Tastes wonderful, uses fresh ingredients and simple to make
Disadvantages: Doesn't last very long!

In the face of absolutely massive public demand (otherwise known as jillmurphy – thank you Jill!) I have been persuaded to share my recipe for lemon curd. The next time you go to the supermarket pick up a jar of lemon curd. Have a look at the list of ...
