There is always jam

Preserve making with the Saturday Telegraph magazine, and the darling Oscar

I am allowing myself a lull. I’ve stopped writing my regular column for the Telegraph and started having bonfires, hoping to find some room for inspiration as I clear out the contents of my office. It’s a distracting job. And although this second I feel at the bottom of the creative pit, it turns out I have produced a few rather nice features over the years. In this piece, published nearly 6 years ago, and which I had quite forgotten about, I bang on about the joys of making jams and jellies as home made presents. I think I will take my own advise and give it a whirl. After all, the sun in shining, the trees are dripping with fruit, and for once in my life I don’t have a deadline….
