Bounty! Raspberry jam!!

Posted on

I’m back after a weeks holiday! Beach eat sleep repeat. It was blissful!

And the plot has had a great time being looked after by my mother! Although I sespect she harvested nothing…. as this is my bounty!

Fruit and veggie haul

So I have set to work, and made:
-Raspberry jam
-Leeks and potatoes from previous harvest went into dinner last night

I plan to make:
-Tomatoe, courgette and chilli chutney… Not sure if I will do a few variations and also get some green tomatoes involved…I have tried a few recipes in the past …but any suggestions?
– possible some sort of pickled chilli and Courgette?
-beetroot brownies!
-pickled beetroots or beetroot chutney?

Basically our house will smell rancid with chutney wafts this week!! I’m thinking to try and make a chutney each night after work 🙂

…Can you make leek chutney?!

My parents saved the sunflowers with some large wooden stakes….and fixed up my raspberries. Once I have had all the fruit this year I need to work out how to cut them back (3 different season varieties) and then set up a proper training system for next year! 🙂 this was my first year with raspberries and I have to say they are amazing!!

Things I should have done:
Dug up my late potatoes. Although they are still flowering!?
Cut back my tomatoes (removing lower branches) to help to green ones to get ripe (not that it’s an issue at the moment) but they do need to be organised as I have let them run wild!
Admired my flowers
General tidy and organise!

    Can’t beat chilli and tomato chutney. The hotter the chillies the better too!

        Ahh yes, Padron peppers, where only one in every 20 is supposed to be hot!! more like every one is phenomenally hot in my experience.

    Wow what a lot of lovely stuff to come home to! You’ve done brilliantly well with your crops haven’t you.
    You are going to be eating a lot of chutney! (though it seems to keep forever – a month or so ago I finished a jar of apple chutney that I had made in 2007!!! – no ill effects).
