What do you do on the hottest day of the year so far if you couldn't care less about the World Cup?

Make jam of course! We visited a pick-your-own farm yesterday and got a bit carried away gathering gooseberries and strawberries. So we had gooseberry crumble for pudding yesterday, pancakes with strawberries & blueberries for breakfast, will have fresh strawberries and Greek yoghurt for pudding today, and I have made about 10 lbs of jam. That should keep us going through the winter.....or at least the next few weeks. Now we await the ripening of raspberries and damsons for the next couple of batches......

I think the English football team should have spent their afternoon today making jam least they'd have had something to show for it!

Love your comment about the English football team... Made me laugh.

I love homemade jam... have to make some of my own. My (black) gooseberries are almost ripe and make fab jelly and jam. :-) xo

That was a sticky comment for the faithful followers of football :-)

We were going to go fruit picking yesterday but it was too hot for my fair complextion! Would have loved to make jam instead of watching the football & it's disapointing result.
Your jam looks yummy, definatly got to go fruit picking soon.
Have a great week.
