I’ve just made my first ever batch of jam!

Santa claus was kind enough to bring me the River Cottage Everyday book, which is where I found the recipe.

The recipe is called “fridge jam” and is not quite a jam and not quite a fruit sauce with the advantage of being really quick to do.

I used a packed of frozen raspberries that were getting lonely in the bottom of the freezer to make a part-quantity to try it out.

The recipe really was quick and very hassle free and I’m pleased with the result so far!

There are two half filled jars of jam cooling on the worktop, crying out for fresh pancakes to be spread on!!

Now, to wait for the autumn and make a whole batch of real jam from forraged berries!!
