New Plum Jam

Filed under: Uncategorized — Darren Hackett @ 2:59 pm

Just look at those plums!!  A few weeks ago we had our plums harvest (or prune as Signora Rita next door calls them).  We have about six plum trees and all of these and more dropped from the trees in one afternoon.  They are delicious and a beautiful reddy purple colour.  We had plum crumble and plum cake that week but most have now been made into fantastic jam.  We have many bottles of this to last for a while and are putting some in small (R**n A*r size) pots to give to our guests when they leave.  Here is a recipe link for you.

You may have seen the stone table in the picture in a couple of our other of photos and we have another of these in the garden.  We think that these tables date from around 1874 as they seem the same age as a stone sink we have in the old kitchen/new lounge we have just begun to renovate.  The other week a charming elderly man came by looking longingly at the house and how beautiful and familar it was to him.  He lived in the house with his family between 1944 and 1946 and remembers playing under the stone tables as a child and using them as a den.  He seemed very happy to recall those times and the beautiful view we have from the house and also to see the house being renewed – so are we!
