Just bought the book cheers Elsiequadrille (as it's not at the library). Looks good and can't wait to read it!

Lol - I used this one but cut the sugar down to about 700g I think as I don't like really sweet jam! The only other thing is that blackberry jam is really full of pips still really good though.

I'd like the recipe too please,I have a freezer drawer full of blackberries!

Ooh I have been trying to find a decent blackberry jam recipe. Can I be cheeky and ask for yours op? Pleeease?

Mil may have found some crab apples though I'm now dubious they are actually apples as they look more like mini plums and are a gold and pink colour - I always remember crab apples as being very small, green mini apples. I think I'll have to order that book as soon as!

Cheers for that - I shall look that up local library and Amazon.

Ok shall look for rosehips as well to put in - thanks for the tip.

So far I'm struggling to find crab apples but i keep looking when i'm out running (so far seen lots of wild apple trees but they look like eating apples not small enough for crab apples).

It's Food for Free (Collins Gem).

I use a Collins book (will look up the title), it's quite basic.

How about rosehip?

I really want to try and make hedgerow jelly - having just made blackberry jam which was a resounding success and now have a few pound of blackberries left to use up. I've also got some damsons which our tree produced (its first havest about 4ozs of them) so not enough for gin.

However I think I will need some other hedgerow prduce - i can identify elderberries ok but can anyone recommend any books etc for identifying Haw berries and other wild produce? As i think these need to go in there and I don't want to poison anyone!
