More Fruit Than Nut

I have had my own Great British Bake Off in my own kitchen.
First up I made a chocolate sponge with Kenny the Kenwood.
Next I made some lemon shortbread.
Now to attack a bag of bramley apples.
I defrosted a 2lb of blackberries,
Out came the jam pan.
2lb of apples, 2lb of blackberries, sugar and lemon juice....
2 hours later,
4 jars full of apple and blackberry jam!
Decorated the chocolate cake with left over Quality Street chocolates...
Just to remind hubby how many years that ball and chain has been attached to his ankle!

Lots Of Squeezing ....

Today, I had a nice lie in (hubby had to go back to work)
Now to use those Bramley apples,
we made three apple pies.
They went into the freezer.
I used the remaining four oranges etc.
2 hours of stirring,stirring and more bloody stirring.
 The end result was 3 jars of marmalade !!!
Now to use up two and half bags of Bramley apples.....

It's Getting Very Wet and Slippy

It's Bank Holiday Monday.
It has rained all day :(
We visited Beckett's Farm for its Funday Monday.
Nearly slipped over in the mud twice,
(If I had, it would have caused a big enough crater to have seen from the moon ;P)
We got home to dry out.
Made 3 jars of marmalade and 2 jars of lemon curd.
Still got 3 bags of bramley apples to get through yet!
