Went down to WI Jam Festival   yesterday, as I had 3 entries in.  Out of 20, I got a 15, a 17, and a 19, which I’m pleased with and now have a better idea what they’re after.  My 19 was for Boozy Jam –Plum and Damson, with raspberry liqueur.  The winner got 20 and there was only 1 other with 19 as far as I could  see.  So if they had made awards beyond first prize, I would have been joint runner-up.  Now, here’s your chance of a freebie:  My  three jars were all opened for a tiny tasting at the WI.  They are now home in the fridge & need using up in about 3 weeks or so.  The first 3 people to make arrangements to meet locally  or collect get a choice of :

boozy jam, redcurrant jelly or damson jam with star anise

so either comment, or email   (try via the web site)  to reserve yours!

Took my entry down to Denman College last Friday, for the WI Real Jam Festival coming up this weekend.  Had a perfect day for it – our unexpected Indian Summer – so after dawdling in the immacculate grounds, I took the slow way home & stopped at an Antique shop for tea & scones in their garden.

I’ve booked a stall at a Craft Fair in Nuneaton on Saturday 3 September.   I’ll be taking honey & jams etc with honey, pamper products with honey & beeswax, as well as some craft fashion items.  Hoping also to give kids an opportunity to try rolling candles from beeswax.  I’d love to see old friends & if anyone can stay long enough to give me a comfort break, even better.
