Summer in a jar

A jam jar, to be precise.


No problem with getting this jam to set!

And the taste? Surprisingly like raspberries, with a hint of goosegog.

One of those little bushes will definitely be coming with me to Somerset.

I love raspberry jam and gooseberry jam, too. I feel the need for a jam sandwich . . .

My absolute favourite you know. Sadly our little Red Gooseberry bush is only one year old and unable to supply us with jam just yet, but I have enjoyed each berry that I have eaten whilst watering the garden.

I never knew you could get red gooseberries. Even the thought of your jam makes my mouth water, let alone your photo...

Your jam looks lovely! I was just checking on the apples in the hedgerow this morning when I was out for my walk - I'm looking forward to making apple jelly again in the autumn.

goosegog? .... okay, that's a strange one.... it almost sounds a little bit icky... I'm sure it is edible though.... or surely you wouldn't have thrown it in on that line ....

BumbleVee said...

okay then...whew..... it's just a pet name for the actual berry..... hahahahhah... silly me. Should have known....

Rather yum.

Don't think I've ever tasted a red goosegog. Now I feel deprived. Your jam looks yum.

Wow, that set up beautifully! Very little chance of getting any jam from any of the fruit-bearers in our yard; we haven't the heart to chase the birds away.
