Jam was the destiny of this particular basket of berries. Nine jars in all. Hopefully enough to keep the resident jam-monsters happy for a few months at least!
A batch of home-made jam seemed the perfect opportunity to try out a new recipe that I have been eyeing. Jam Shortbread, from Tessa Kiros' wonderful book Apples for Jam. Intended to be this week's lunchbox treats, it will be a miracle if they last long enough. So sweet, so gooey and oh so very, very tempting.
