Yet more fruit…. scrummy!

Ok so the cherry jam was not a success, at least is is not the best jam I have ever made, but will be excellent for pies and riccotta cake, however yesterday my friend Paul arrived with a colossal amount of raspberries.

These are Scottish raspberries, grown by an Englishman here in Valdichiascio, Umbria, Italy and utterly delicious

Now, I have a problem with raspberries, Quite simply I adore them, and the temptation to eat them all is immense, however that would be gluttony gone wild, so they are being made into jam for the guys here at Bellaugello Gay Guesthouse.

My first boiling last night resulted in a bright tangy jam, and will be on the breakfast table tomorrow, meanwhile with this latest delivery I know that I will get little time to work on my tan today – and it’s a beautiful day, I will be making yet more jam..
