The Fig Jam is made and ready to go. ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐhow it brings back many memories of past. ๐Ÿค”
With the help of Hubby and his Mum at the age of 87 and with her Jam recipe we gave her a back in time memory of when she was always making Jams back on the farm . ๐ŸŒฟ
The Recipe book was given to her as a Xmas Gift by her son (Hubby) in 1972๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ™Œ Our kids would remember her Jams and Preserves. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Itโ€™s been fun making Jam and Chutney this week. ๐Ÿ™Œ
I remember when living on the farm all the fruit and vegetables we would preserve, blanch and freeze when the season was in full swing. ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ‡๐ŸŒ๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿฅ•it was an endless production line but when it was all done and dusted to see the Pantry and Freezers full of produce for the family made the effort so enjoyable. ๐ŸฅฐIt truly made life a lot easier as we lived quiet a distance from shops and having a fresh supply ready for those busy times when work , school and sport.
Growing herbs, fruit , vegetables fresh eggs and our own meat supply. ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ
Wow they were truly busy times.
The original recipe came from The C.W.A Cookery Book and Household Hints 27th Edition published 1971 – ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ
