Whether it's drizzled on ice cream in the Summer or to melt into steaming porridge as the mornings get colder, there is nothing that takes me back to childhood more than a home-made jam.
|Mayflower's Apple and Damson Jam|
Mayflower's Apple and Damson jam wasn't quite ready back then, so I waited patiently until my very own jar arrived on my doorstep this month...
|Vintage style jar with handwritten label completes the package|
It was worth the wait. It tasted just like I thought it would, the right amount of sweetness with the delicate taste of the damsons. It was like a complete Summer country harvest in a jar.
A swirl was just the thing to finish off my first bowl of porridge this Autumn, served with seeds, dried mixed fruit and goji berries. A perfect start to any October morning if you ask me.
|Delicious swirled into porridge|
It's not going to last long in our house though, it's perfect on a doorstep slice of toast and I am sure there's been talk of scones being baked especially for it....now where is the clotted cream?
|You NEED to try in on a slice of crusty white bread too.|
