Things I have learned this week:
Weirdy chestnuts are indeed confined to that one tree. I now have a bowlful of nice fat chestnuts from a tree I spotted while out running.
Yellow bullace jam makes a delicious sticky glaze for chicken drumsticks.
Norfolk Kitchen will appear on Radio Norfolk on Tuesday 20th October at 11.10am to talk about sloe gin - v excited about that one!
Making Hawthorn Ketchup (pictured) can't have been that bad as I've picked a second batch of haws.
The Pickled Plums taste amazing on potted cheese but are still too sharp to eat with something sweet like ice cream.
Sloes do not make a good chutney.
