There is nothing that I like better than shimmying on down to a “Pick Your Own farm” and getting all close and personal with my food. I have many a happy childhood memory spent rambling around fields with grubby knees and strawberry stained lips. Nothing much has changed!
This weekend I had the pleasure of heading on down to the wonderful Copas Pick Your Own Farm in Cookham. It is like a little piece of abundant, rural heaven. This month there are strawberries, raspberries, cherries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, spinach, beetroot, green beans, broad beans, peas and more. Yum, yum and yum.
Now I need to work out what to do with all my booty. Am planning to don my inventors hat (in reality this is an imaginary bit of tin foil fashioned into a cap with pointy ears) and get busy in the kitchen to create my very own Summer Jam. I’ve no idea how to make jam. I have never made jam. How hard can it be? You don’t really need a thermometer do you???
Ciao for now.
