So blueberries were on offer at the store, so I've made blueberry jam this time with fair success and it's a pretty simple recipe to follow.

Only two ingredients - blueberries and sugar in equal quantities (I did 600g of each and got three pots of jam out of it) If the blueberries are very solid, a tablespoon or two of water may be added when you're at the 'softening the fruit' stage. I didn't add any to mine just heated gently until the blueberries began to soften and burst.

A friend sent me this recipe. I made it, and it's so delicious that I have to make more now! It's ideal with cold meats and salads and sandwiches and just about anything else you can think of!

Welcome to all who love to dabble in the business of pickling and preserving! I used to help my grandmother with this when I was a child (most of my most treasured memories involve my grandmother and myself preparing enormous amounts of vegetables from the allotment prior to storing - or a mixing bowl, a wooden spoon and lots of lovely cake ingredients).

Now that I have a permanent base with my partner of four years I have picked up this craft again. I began with cabbage and eggs, but have also successfully made chutney, onion and rosemary confiturra and piccalilli from scratch.

I'm more than happy to share recipes of all of these goodies - just ask!

Firstly though, I'd like you all to pull up a chair around the kitchen table and use this post to get to know each other.
