Jam Session

Well one of our busiest Februarys ever has led to a quiet March so far. I think everyone has had enough of winter, even the fun parts. So I turned to restocking the jam cupboard this week. I really do love making jam and preserves. It is incredibly satisfying. Last week it was chutney this week it was peach jam and peach and orange conserve. The later is a very old family recipe from one of my close friends and it smells incredible as it simmers away. It is a no pectin recipe so it needs to reduce in order to set.  I think tomorrow may be Warwick's mom's Ripe Tomato Chutney.
