Jelly

This year I have made two and a bit pots of rowan jelly ; turned out very caramelly.  And two and a half pots of bramble and apple jelly, which turned out rather too sweet.  I think perhaps because I used apples from my own trees rather than scrumping crabapples off the hill. 

I plan to make apple chutney next, as we have a major glut of apples!   Possibly also some more mint jelly, always handy with lamb.  Rosehips?  Maybe...

I can't make any more geranium and apple jelly as my geraniums all died in the Terrible Winter (greenhouse protection generally enough, but not this year!)  and I've not bought any more.

I have loads of rosehips this year, I've lost a lot already by being too lazy/busy to go out and pick them. I mustn't let them all go to waste though. I also had my first cranberry harvest - a whole 24 berries which weighed a total of 19g. Not sure exactly what to do with them as I think they'd only make about 1 tbsp of cranberry relish :-D
