When life gives you green tomatoes…

make chutney…of course…..my first time and something tells me it won’t be the last time…..I’m so impressed with the simplicity of the whole recipe and the process too…

When life gives you blackberries….

make jam……but if you are a complete beginner like me do loads of research and find a recipe that you know is going to work….unless you are a confident kind of person and , unlike me, you trust your instinct….what a palaver…first of all, I watched a bbc food¬†tutorial which showed how to make raspberry jam but it did say that you could substitute it with blackberries….secondly , no indication of how long to cook it for and the way it was shown it looks like was done in a matter of minutes ( time lapse and all that)…..oh well, it is done now and I can put it down to experience and all that…I hope it tastes good…..I’ve gone the extra mile and mashed the whole lot through a very fine sieve to get rid of pips…..that I’m dog tired is the understatement of the century….

I got just over one of those jars out of 750 grams of berries….not sure I’ll be making it again…..I think I’ll stick to cobblers…….I reckon raspberry is an easier fruit to work with as no pips

I have promised a friend tea with scones and homemade jam so I will be reporting back in a few days….

the custard on top is optional but it helps…big time…..cause those blackberries can be a touch tarty…..and you want something really sweet to make it all perfect…..

What else can I make with the rest of the blackberries in the fridge? …Overnight oats? ….muffins? ¬†we’ll think of something I’m sure….

Wishing you all a great ending to the weekend….

Salaams y hasta la vista,
