When baby sleeps… cook!

Baking

27th July 2014

It’s an excellent morning when Betty sleeps, that is the most reliable time of day to try and get things done. This morning I had two harvests from my garden which needed attention before they went bad. I haven’t managed to harvest much this year as not been able to do much gardening for the last 6 months and the foxes have beaten me. The two crops that need no attention from me are the cherry plums and blackberries. I was a bit late picking the cherry plums so many had gone to waste on the floor but I got enough to make a couple of jars of jam. I used this recipe and it tastes great!

As I had family coming to visit later I also thought I’d better make a cake. I already have cupboards full of blackberry jam as my garden is covered in brambles. This is a tried and tested recipe and always comes out great.
