Back home on Saturday we had a five year old and 3 year old staying overnight. They are the children of close friends but we were a little nervous because of their age. We needn't have been as everyone had a lot of fun and, eventually, all the small people went to sleep to let me and John relax a little.
Other friends had gifted us huge amounts of plums from their overflowing trees. This year seems to have been such a good one for fruit, certainly around here. We ate as many as we could manage but they were ripening fast so I made a batch of Spicy Plum Chutney and another of Plum Jam.
The jam isn't quite so pretty as the Strawberry Jam I made earlier in the summer but I am quite fond of the slighty softer colour although I don't know how you would describe it. Any ideas?
Annie for her very gratefully received tips and help. Amongst other things I had set it too wide for viewing on ipads and other smaller devices. I think it now fits.......but if it doesn't please do tell me!
