If you like mincemeat then it’s madness not to make your own. Homemade Mincemeat is so quick to make and so much better than any you can buy, which always seems to be far too sweet.

Just three ingredients are needed to make this easy rhubarb and elderflower jam. It uses elderflower cordial so you do not even need to go foraging for the elderflowers. The finished jam has a lovely, fresh sweet flavour with just a hint of elderflower. Perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea. Jam sandwiches anyone?
The intense tangy flavour of juicy blood oranges makes them ideal for making orange curd. Delicious on toast, scones, plain cakes and crumpets. Blood orange curd is like a ray of sunshine in the darker winter months and somehow reminds us that spring is not far off.
Piccalilli is a classic English pickle that is perfect with cold meats, a ploughman’s, or pork pie. Lightly pickled vegetables in a spicy aromatic sauce, Homemade Piccalilli is easy to make and tastes far superior to any commercially made piccalilli.
The pomegranate flavour in this Peach and Pomegranate Jam is subtle but oh so delicious. It is fast becoming my favourite flavoured jam. What’s more, it is really easy to make.
Easy to make, Mr.B’s Award winning Rhubarb Chutney with its delicious sweet & sour tang is a real winner. It’s perfect with a chunk of cheddar, and divine in a ham sandwich.
Raspberries and redcurrants – What a combination! The slightly tart redcurrants compliment sweet juicy raspberries perfectly in this raspberry and redcurrant jam, giving the jam just the right amount of acidity to really make the flavours zing.
Tangy sharp and delicious blackcurrant jam is my favourite jam. It is really simple to make as it is naturally high in pectin, so it sets easily.
