There is not much else growing in our garden (thanks to the crows and the early heat) but we do have strawberries… loads of delicious, sweet, strawberries.
The big question on everyone’s lips is…. do I attempt to make Jam? Or do we just eat them?
This year however, I am armed with a confectioners thermometer which should (maybe?) help avoid last years smoke flavoured jam issues. But it’s still a lot of time to spend, and a lot of strawberries to waste with little certainty of a decent outcome. And I mean we could just eat the strawberries as they are, enjoy them, and I could move on. But jam… yummy home made with our own strawberries jam… to have on our pancakes and croissants Christmas morning….. do I dare???
