15 Fabulous Harvest Preserves

There is just a whiff of Autumn in the air. The days are slightly shorter, the mornings a little cooler and hedgerows, fields, orchards and gardens are ripe and ready. It's a time of plenty so sterilise some jam jars, gather the harvest and get ready to preserve the flavours of summer! 

Opening a jar of jam or a bottle of cordial on winter's coldest days and releasing the scent and warmth of summer has to be one of the best rewards for time spent in the kitchen.  This week we're sharing recipes for Jams, Jellies and Fruity Beverages with 15 Fabulous Harvest Preserves. You'll find my own favourite plum jam and a glorious selection from some of our favourite food bloggers and websites.  Have you got a recipe which we should be trying this autumn? 

Jams, Jellies and Curds

Christopher's Foolproof Plum Jam from Demuths

Fig and Strawberry Jam from The Veg Space

Apple, Pear and Passion Fruit Chutney from Tinned Tomatoes

Sloe and Crab Apple Hedgerow Jelly from Smarter Fitter

Bramble Jelly from Feeding Boys 

Damson Jam from Fab Food 4 All

Spiced Apple and Rosehip Jelly from Foodie Quine
