Counting on ….day 213 

14th June 2022

Strawberries and raspberries are in season. Now is the time to preserve their flavour for enjoyment later in the year. I have been making jam and bottling these soft fruits. As strawberries and raspberries are quite delicate fruits, I bottle them with rhubarb. I precook the rhubarb till it is soft, mix in uncooked soft fruits and fill the jars with this combination before sterilising them in hot water.
