The other day I was reading a post by John, from The Bartolini Kitchens, and the penny dropped.
John mentioned that he loved to make jam but wasn’t too keen on eating jam and toast. I smiled as I read that because I am the same. I can’t possibly throw out excess fruit so I make preserves and then we end up with jars and jars of jam that take us years to consume. My melon, lemon and ginger jam I made this time last year comes to mind. It tastes great but we have probably only eaten two jars in one year.
