A silly little thread idea for anyone else out there like me who loves to makes, jams, chutneys and the like. What have you made this year? Do you grow your own, pick the local hedgerows, or chummy up to your friends and colleagues with bigger gardens than you? I do all three :D


In the last month or so I have made:


Indian spiced marrow chutney

Chilli-tomato-marrow chutney

Cherry jam

Cherry and apple jam

Damson, blackberry and apple jam

Victoria plum jam

Sloe gin

Damson gin

Plum gin

Spicy plum dipping sauce




There are also a load of plums, cherries and blackberries in the freezer. Hopefully next year my raspberries, black, red and white currants and gooseberries will have settled in and produced more fruit too.


Does anyone else spend their days off hovering over a pot of simmering preserves?!

That awkward moment when your partner walks into the kitchen to find you huddled in the corner with an open container of nooch and a spoon and your mouth encrusted with little flakes...

I started canning for the first time ever this year.  I have pickled beets, tomato sauce, and refrigerator pickles (from cucumber).  All the produce is from my own vegan garden.  I have so many cucumbers it's overwhelming.  Ditto with beets.  I haven't tried jams yet but my mother in law showed me  how to make that.  One of these days when I get some time.  Nooch your preserves look wonderful!  me wants some.  :)
