A good set on my crab apple jelly, clear as a bell . I have just give it a wiggle and it's gelling nicely
I like to cap my preserves when they are cold , and then the pinked circles of check fabric go on top of the lids .
There will be a jar for a neighbour who brings me all kind of goodies . These people only moved in feb,. just gone but are very giving and sharing .
A jar for a neighbour who is well in his eighties , he brings me tomatoes and lots of blackberries . Last year I told him how to make blackberry vinegar . He told me he had no colds or sore throat last winter .
Of course there will be a supply for bluebell
Now for the crunch!! the jelly is free but there is a £30 deposit on the jar .
Now this fellow , I don't think it is the same one as yesterday , It's a different shape . I almost put my foot on it . I tried to avert a squashed frog , wobbled and nearly fell over but all was safe . he jumped out of the way . Mmmm might have had frog legs for supper .
