This week I've combined Kirsty's Wednesday Crop with this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge to come up with this layout.
A few posts back, I made a layout depicting how our quince tree was bursting with fruit. Well this is just a small selection of the jars of stuff made from them. We gave a lot of the quinces away to friends and family and virtually anyone who bravely rang our doorbell or entered the house. The ones we kept were converted either into quince jelly (or jam if you prefer) or this favourite concoction of my better half's, Mostarda.
Our cellar is now wall to wall with jars of homemade condiments. Not bad considering how small our kitchen is. Cooking the evening meals was like trying out for the Krypton Factor. Now I read in this morning's Guardian that sloe season has begun. No doubt we'll be descending on our secret sloe bush location and filling up large rucsacs with the berries before turning them into umpteen bottles of Sloe Gin. Anyone fancy a Sloe Comfortable Screw this winter? Thought not.
