Blackberries Back - Alright!

Well here at TCG HQ it's turned distinctly Autumnal. So we've cracked out the cosy knits and repurposed our favourite bamboo salad bowl for the all important business of foraging...

We are so lucky here to be surrounded by incredible countryside and lots and lots of blackberry bushes. Jam time!

With the aid of our mini-helper - Naomie - we managed quite the haul of fruit. An overnight soak in jam sugar (SO MUCH SUGAR!) and a quick boil on the hob later, and we were ready to decant into our gorgeous Country Garden Heart Jars - ideal for prettying up your kitchen, or as a gift filled with homemade Jam.

We can confirm, crumpets were toasted, tea was drunk and everyone is feeling very happy indeed right now!
