After the fruit and veg picking I got to work making some raspberry jam. I got a really simple recipe from here and it really was so simple. They're right when they say homemade is best. Walking the dog in the park I have spotted the late blooming blackberries. After my raspberry jam success, I thought I'd give this a go. I only managed to pick around 150g of blackberries, and without planning or editing the recipe the result was a sticky disaster! Cooking is as much a science as it is an art! Nevertheless, if you abide by the recipe, homemade jam comes out a treat.
