Autumnal Colours, Sweet Peas and Raspberry Jam

24 Aug

1   It certainly feels Autumnal today! It’s raining and so much cooler and the leaves are beginning to turn.

2   In a lull in the rain, I went out and collected our last few Sweet Peas. I wish you could smell them too….

3   I decided to use the Raspberries that we picked in the summer to make Raspberry Jam and Raspberry Jelly so as to free up space in the freezer. Now they can be stored in jars on the shelves and leave room for all the batch baking of dinners that I am preparing.

    The raspberry jam looks good. I like the way you have labelled the jars.

      I buy the labels – wish I could print my own like a friend does but I do like these! 🙂
