Cornish Clotted Cream Tea

Those of you who are weight watching may want to look away now!

I made jam with the blackberries I picked






















I really enjoyed making the jam and having others enjoy it. I have given away seven jars of it already!

The recipe was very easy. I've posted it on my other blog if you want it - Blackberry and Apple Jam Recipe

































I made so much jam I ran out of jars!

















My sister is still staying with us and my parents visited for the day. I made everyone a calorie loaded Cornish clotted cream tea with the jam

















I can report it was delicious!

Of course it was! [delicious] We get Devon clotted cream here in the little jars and once in a while, I just go and look at them. Once in a blue moon, I even have a spoonful. One has to enjoy life!!!!

The smell is wonderful too, isn't it and creates such anticipation. Well done, after all that work you deserved the cream tea, Carolyn. (I always put the jam on first)! BFN. Lesley

I love Blackberry and Apple jam - infact Blackberry and Apple ANYTHING!! Still plenty left in the hedgerows and my freezer is getting full up too. That scone looks perfect.

Yes, Lesley, my sister also puts the jam on first! She says it's easier to spread. I never do things the easy way!

Jam looks lovely - I picked some blackberries from the lane near my house at the weekend and made a gorgeous blackberry and apple cake. I love making chutneys but have never been successful with jam - I always seem to burn it - I may have another go though as I have loads of apples need using up.
