I spent some lovely summer and early autumn evenings picking blackberries, giving me a 4kg harvest.
Last Sunday, a friend and I spent several happy hours in his kitchen, listening to some good music, and making jam.
I didn’t take any more photos after this, but we made 13 jars of blackberry jam, and 8 jars of blackberry and apple jelly. It’s lovely, great in porridge.
We also made some non-Newtonian semi-Freddo, with some of the water which we poured over the berries, boiled for a bit, and then changed our minds, so poured it off and froze it. It is amazing, quite tart, but wonderful with chocolate ice cream. We’ll never be able to replicate it, sadly.
