Apples

Yesterday a neighbour in the village gave us a bag of apples from a tree in their garden. They had run out of things to do with them, and so they were glad to get rid of them.

Today I've been turning them into jam. I peeled and cored them, removed the various blemishes, and chopped them up (1.5Kg) and added 1Kg of Fair Trade sugar, a knob of butter and a dash of lemon juice. The whole lot was then boiled up in a nice French cast-iron pan, and once it had gone nice and mushy I bottled it up.

It's not common to see is apple jam/jelly, but I've done it before, and it's quite nice on toast for breakfast.
