Mam demonstrates the true art of jam making

hi there
I have been missing for awhile, sorry for that, after my best summer in a vest this year. I returned to work and was so busy that I have neglected my blog. But my  mam put a stop to that, by paying a visit to conduct some serious supervised rasberry and strawberry jam making. All 84 years of her arrived to whip us all into shape, she top and tailed the rasberries, heated the jars and the sugar, the jam was boiled and stirred, then the jam was tested.

She overseen everything with pride and was thrilled to see the finished products. 18 pots in total.
