The rain continues…is it really August? What happened to our lovely sunny weather…It feels like winter is fast approaching and summer dresses and floaty clothing will soon be tucked away to make room for winter jumpers and snug warm boots. I’m not ready though… I need longer in the sun, more time to relax and enjoy our lovely countryside, more time to enjoy fresh air, lazy spells of gardening and simple cooking.
Walking the country lanes and searching out seasonal produce is fun and rewarding. So although I've already posted a plum jam recipe here's another, this time for blackberry and apple. Time I think to start gathering the berries and sorting out the shed for jam jars.
Blackberry and Apple Jam recipe
Gather up what you need before you start.
It is well worth sieving the fruit when soft so that you don’t have jam with seeds in….far nicer when spreading on thick buttered toast in the winter….lovely.

I live at the edge of a pretty little town at the foot of the Malvern Hills, where days are long and always sunny, my house tidy, cupboards full, and the washing pile non existent...hmm maybe not.
