Mmmmmmmmmm apricots..........

We are lucky to have a lovely neighbour who allows us to pick her fruit in exchange for a few jars of jam - thanks Nan!

After bubbling away on the stove for a bit I bottled 11 jars of jam....

The best fruit went to making dried apricots, gotta love the dehydrator! Lots of work but well worth it for the tart yummy treats.....



There's plenty more where that came from, we'll be picking apricots for weeks, and then there's the plums and figs, not to mention the peaches Mum grows...... There's something very satisfying about looking at a cupboard full of hand made preserves.....
