I've got some more jam making lined up. Our Victoria plum didn't do as well as I thought it would. Only one part of the tree had fruited well and I'd failed to notice brow rot setting in. Still, I got 7lbs of jam which, given there is still plum jam over from last year, is enough and I have a small quantity to stew and freeze.

The gauges and the damson failed but, as damson jam is mum's favourite, we bought (came today and are now in the freezer) some frozen damsons to try. While at it, we also got some frozen raspberries.

With luck, I should wind up with 6-8 lb jars of jam of of each of these and I think that should leave us reasonably set until next year.

I also need to make some more marmalade for which I'll use mamade. I find you get a very nice Seville Orange marmalade for little effort with this. It's funny as both brands (Robertons and Hartleys) that Mamade has been sold under do have off the shelf ready made marmalades but this comes out so much better.
