Wild raspberries and jam!
Yesterday whilst out walking my daughter and I noticed some wild raspberries - these together with my home grown ones made some lovely jam last night. I used the recipe from Nigella Lawson's book called 'Domestic goddess' . It's called 'No Hands Raspberry Jam' . It's not a jam for keeping and needs to be kept in the fridge but the taste is so fresh and absolutely delicious . It's one of my family's favourite jams! This is my first batch of jam this year! Those who know me are aware of my prolific preserving habits - it has almost become obsessional in the past. It must be nesting instincts or certainly something primeval ! But the satisfaction and the pleasure I have once a batch is made is soooo rewarding . I'm already making plans for my next batch of jam - apricot or strawberry ?
