Damson Delight

28 Sep

A kind friend handed me a large bag of damsons last week so today has been a jam making day.


The stones/pips nearly broke me – you can’t get them out easily like a large plum, so the only option is to start heating up the damsons and sugar and then fish them out one by one as they rise to the surface. Hopefully got 99% of them !


It was getting really quite hot in the kitchen – perhaps not the best day to choose ! But hopefully it will be worth it !


Now to make some scones so I can really enjoy the jam ! Never have a huge amount of luck with scones so if anyone can recommend a fool proof recipe please tell me.
