This weekend I made my first ever batch of jam. Late last summer I picked about 3 kilos of blackberries from our garden, and froze them all, intending to spend some wet wintery day making jam.

Now it’s summer again, and our blackberry bushes are heaving with little green berries. So, in anticipation of a really bumper crop later in the summer, I figured I should use up some of those frozen berries now.

And here they are, six happy little jars of jam. There was another half a jar too, which is in the fridge for using right away. In the absence of scones and clotted cream, I mixed a couple of spoons into some of my home made yoghurt, for immediate nom.
