I had to do quite a bit of driving yesterday, I did get the dogs walked first though.
On my return, after a cuppa of course, I went "hunter gathering", well just gathering really.
Inspired by Jess I collected lots of Haws and then I spotted some rose hips. Suffering a few minor scratches I added those to my basket.
As I turned to go I spotted a few apples in amongst the turning leaves of a little thicket, another scratch or 2 but goal attained and 4 decent apples went in with the booty.
To round it all off I picked some late blackberries and then turned for home.
Once back I picked over my haul, put the hips into the processor and blitzed them. chopped the apples up, along with a few that were left from the last jamming session, washed the haws and berries and got them in the pot with enough water to cover. A good boil and simmer with a couple of attacks with the potato masher and into the jelly bag to drip overnight.
As I tap away the resulting juice is boiling away with some sugar and will soon reach setting point.
I will let you know how it is tomorrow, must dash now.
