It’s been a bit of a cottage industry here in our kitchen. The preserving pan came out of retirement and there’s been lots of chopping, dicing and peeling plus a very sore thumb at the end of it all. But, we’ve ended up with 23 jars of jams, jellies and chutneys. There was a lot of deliberation about what kind of fruity plum tree we had. Maybe greengages, maybe Mirabelles?? Our fruits were more on the green/yellow side and Mirabelles are yellow. But after seeing the differences in the supermarket and help from Diane, we definitely have a Mirabelle tree. Our Mirabelle harvest has given us Mirabelle jelly, Mirabelle jam and Mirabelle chutney. Plus we have Bramble jelly from our walk on Sunday, Apple, tomato and onion chutney and Storecupboard chutney from our apple trees. We’ve also frozen apples and blackberries for future puddings.
If anyone counts the jars, there’s one missing. It’s a jar of Mirabelle jelly that’s in the fridge and it’s nearly all gone. Yum!
