Life is a bowl of cherries

IMG_1652IMG_1660 IMG_1643 Harvest begins in earnest in North Yorkshire. The cherries are destined for jam, any recipe advice would be welcomed by the way.

and the chilli just has to look pretty for now. He does have friends but they are still on the plant.

Keeping with the cherry theme I made this to house the carrier bag that I made and posted about last time. Its the Lucy ripple in leftover granny yarn. I am off to make some more SIBOL squares now for the straw berries and cream challenge then maybe some beachy ones too I will share them later on.IMG_1664

  2. Very envious of your cherries. Are they sweet or sour? Haven't made cherry jam so can't help you there.

  3. What about cherry cordial following the method for my redcurrant cordial? Recurrants are tart too so I reckon it would work pretty well and you wouldn't need to stone them.

  6. Hi Louise!
    Sorry I have no advice on jam making, I have never tried to make jam! I love the little ripple pouch you made for your bag, it's really sweet! Sounds like your veggie patch is doing marvelous - mine has been a bit of a failure, only enough beans for one meal! hopefully the tomatoes will fair better!
    Have a fab weekend!
