I still had a remarkable amount of chopped ginger and crabapple juice left on Sunday, but no jam sugar, so I bought lemons and sugar at the shop. Then I found the fig tree had put forth a sudden late-summer-sun inspired profusion of figs, so I chopped them and flung them in as well.
This - or perhaps the lack of jam sugar, or not enough lemons - may have been a mistake. It took about two hours of bubbling before the jam would consent to set. But in the end it did, in a rather grumpy caramelised sort of way, so now I have... umpty tum assorted jars of rather caramelly ginger, fig and crabapple jam.
And with the aid of Pp, I finally took down the awful broken old outside light and finally put up the new one that has been sitting in the porch for ages. And I also fixed the side gate latch that Brythen broke! Then I went blackberrying with my mother and the dogs.
