On Friday I decided to make some jam so off we went to the local fruit farm to pick some berries. Upon arrival we were informed that the berries were not yet ripe. Oh, how wonderful it is to live in bonny Scotland!
After a rummage around the antique shop next door we headed off in search of more berries.
This scrumptious jam was made with strawberries fresh from The Aisles of Waitrose.
Perhaps it doesn't hold the same romanticism as picking my own would have but I did try.
I simply added rose extract instead of petals ( I was given Laduree's Rose Preserve last Christmas, although it tasted wonderful I hated the texture of the petals) into a basic strawberry jam recipe. Oh, and a little balsamic vinegar instead of lemon juice, it really makes the strawberries taste extra strawberry-ry!
I haven't printed the labels yet but thats what they'll look like. Thanks Wilson.
I'll be trying out Blueberry and Vanilla next week.
