On the way home from work the other day, coming down the hill past the graveyard, I spotted a huge amount of tiny yellow fruits on the grass in the graveyard, tiny wee wild yellow plums; Looking up, there was still quite a lot on the tree. I got Bean and bf to go up last night and forage them for me, they came back with 3lbs 12oz of them! Lovely, sweet and juicy and a beautiful colour.
Mind you, gone are the days when the reward offered for foraging and picking fruit was a piece of cake or an ice lolly - seems to be a large gin and tonic is the going rate these days lol
I sat and stoned them all, took about 47 minutes , I timed it; well worthd oing, as it makes the jam easier to eat.
Equal amounts of sugar and fruit, plus just over a pint of water, into the pot and on to a very hot Rayburn.
It is the most beautiful colour, and has a sharp edge to it, which I like; colour and texture is reminiscent of apricot jam, so if there's any left, I can use it on the Christmas cake. Well worth the sacrifice of my gin lol
