Recent preserves

green tomatoes Sept 13

My recent acquisition of green tomatoes (swapped from honey and jam) resulted in another batch of chutney. 2.5kg made 9 large jars of green tomato chutney. It will be left to stand for a month to mature before being used.

bramble butter Sept 13

Last week I made a batch of bramble jelly. The pulp left over was put to good use to make bramble butter. It is a beautiful dark red colour. 9 large jars were made. I will pick more blackberries shortly. They will be used for blackberry jam, hedgerow jelly and pies.
