I am not a fan of jam, unless it is homemade. Preferably with homegrown fruit. Unfortunately, I didn't have homegrown fruit to use so I just went with the tastiest cheapest fruit I could find at the markets. I have a tight budget now that I haven't been working since September last year. Goodness, that's already 4 months off. If only it were under better circumstances.

I made this jam a while ago. The Apricot and Vanilla and Summer Berries batches were whipped up before Christmas. Perfect Christmas presents for unplanned-for visitors or to give when visiting. Much cheaper than a box of chocolates and in my opinion, much nicer!

The Plum and Cinnamon was made after Christmas. I was waiting on the blood plums to come out. They are so much nicer for jamming than yellow flesh ones.
Once I get rid of this dreadful lurgy I am thinking of getting a box of tomatoes and making up a tomato relish. I haven't made that before. Anyone have a good recipe they can recommend?
