This is the most amazing jam I have ever made.
'But what about the poor victim?'
None other than this unremarkable..........
...........Peach, which when it is cut open reveals an unusually red-tinged flesh.
All summer long these peaches have remained resolutely unripe and then suddenly a couple of weeks ago, after we had some rain, they started to plump up and fall from the tree. The resulting jam is an incredible ruby red colour with a distinctly peachy flavour.
Now, I must stop playing with the kitchen knife and get back in my coffin.
Before I go I will pass on this award, which I was delighted to receive earlier this week.
So Cheeky Lemur this is for you!
