It has been a busy year for jams, chutney and relishes and so, as I pot my last jam, I am forced to use recycled Lloyd Grossman sauces jars. It is that time of the year again.
One last marrow was too small to use as a stand alone meal and I had a bit left over from a larger marrow we ate last week. Joshua insisted that this was a waste of good marrow that should be served stuffed as his favourite supper but even my mother-in-law praises my marrow and ginger jam so I finished off the marrows to make this small run last night.
This jam needs to be left in a dark and cool place, the larder, for a few months to really taste its best so it should be ready by Christmas.
