After previously buying in all our preserves for the breakfast table, Jan decided a couple of years back to start making her own jams and marmalades. We've tried out quite a selection on our guests, including a beautifully tart wild plum jam made from produce grown in the local hedgerows. After taking stock of what we've used we've discovered that the most popular jam this summer was damson, so if you know of any going to waste year after year please let us know. Jan also makes her own chutneys using seasonal fruit and vegetables, and now has approaching 20 different varieties.
