A Photo a Week Challenge: The Fruits of your Labour
I am inspired today by Nancy Merrill's photo challenge to show what I have accomplished this week. We have a Katy apple tree which we were given by my mum when our eldest was born. It is a very good producer but the fruit does not keep well. The apples have the most gorgeous aroma and it is shame to waste them.
Yesterday I collected a lot of the fallers to use in apple jelly and picked several baskets for egg customers to help themselves to. I usually make apple jelly using some Bramley fallers to boost the pectin. This year I also went blackberry picking and added a good few handfuls in. You need two days
to make jelly allowing for straining the fruit.
Here is my result.
Included here are the result of a labour of love in the garden. Beautiful flowers to enjoy.
