Napton (CV47 8LS) village is a mixture of modern & traditional & the drive out there included some single-track lanes.  Sally Satnav is very good at finding these, but it did take me past the Blue Lias Inn near Stockton.  So a bit of history & geology thrown in.  Looks like a potential summer ride out. 

The Fair went went very well.  I can’t take all the produce with me to fairs, so just have a little of evrything.  This time, I sold out of some lines – very pleasing.  Hot & spicy seems to be popular around here.  Great compliments for the Plum Sauce, which  is one of my favourites too.

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!
