So I gathered together some jars - no mean task when we dutifully put out all our empties these days for recycling.
I hubbled, bubbled and toiled over a hot stove to produce damson jam and lovely, clear jelly. More damsons and sugar were added to some gin which needs to be shaken up regularly for a couple of months. The damson gin should be ready in time to enjoy at Christmas. I've never made it before so am looking forward to this little treat.Naturally I just had to give the jars the nostalgia fairy treatment. I decorated the tops with tissue paper and fine net.
