January is a Jammy Month !

24 Jan

I know that all the really organised WI types make their jam in the summer months as their fruit ripens. But I always find that I am far to busy actually gardening ( and holidaying !)  in those summer months to actually make jam. So I throw it all in the freezer and wait for a dull wet day in January to release all that summer goodness !

I’m not sure if the fruit deteriorates in any way but I have never had any problems with it setting and it always tastes delicious!! Raspberries, blackcurrants, gooseberries, redcurrants all work well.

And while all the jam making paraphanlia is out, I have made some Seville Orange Marmalade – the oranges are only in the shops for a few weeks in January so now is the time – but I do also throw these in the freezer some years and they work brilliantly from frozen too.

So for once I am calling the shots, rather than my allotment !
