It all started when Chris asked why I didn't eat his blackberry jam. I replied that I wasn't that keen on blackberries, except in a crumble, but if he made some raspberry jam, I would definitely eat that as it is my favourite. While visiting Mum and Dad on Sunday, we picked some raspberries and apples. The raspberries and two apples were destined to become jam.
The jam was duly made and had the most lovely colour. Chris added the apples as we didn't have quite enough raspberries for the recipe.
The jam had a lovely rich jewel-like colour - I was very excited about tasting it. It reached setting point very quickly (Chris used jam sugar which has added pectin, and no doubt the apples helped too).
Last night, I had the very good idea of making scones and getting some cream, which is what I did today.
It is amazing to think that the raspberries and apples were still on the plant/tree just two days ago. The jam is delicious and has an extremely good set on it too. Yum!
