This time it's jam today

I know this'll make you whimper, abiku and anyone else who's having cold weather and not liking it, but... sorry...

It's been too bright and warm to stay inside much today, and there's a pleasant autumnal breeze blowing, so I decided to take a turn around the garden. I'd quite expected the raspberries to be all but over, if not completely done, but it's been such mild weather that they're still fruiting all over.

So I trundled back in and fetched my berry-picking bowl - it's just the right size and weight that I can still hold it one-handed even when it's brimming with berries - and proceeded to fill it heaping high. I didn't bother putting my mitts on, so my hands were scratched to bits, but who cares? I had raspberries.

Jam-making's only interesting to jam makers, I know, so I'll forbear to inflict the details. Suffice it to say that I now have three jars of raspberry quickjam cooling on my worktop, hurrah; and there looks to be enough raspberries ripening yet that I'll be able to do the same again next week, Pomona volente. My kitchen smells of raspberries, and all is pretty damn good.
