Went into Morrisons last night, Janet noticed 10 packs of apricots on the reduced to clear shelf. It is the only jam Janet loves rather than will eat.
Anyone guess what I am doing tonight???
Oh the marmalade oranges are back as well so got some of them today, they can wait until tomorrow.
Pints all round.
Hope it turned out right the second time 🙂 I love apricot jam too. But not enough to buy apricots that have been flown halfway across the world! I think it's such a shame supermarkets (in the UK at any rate, not nearly so much in France) stock airfreighted out-of-season products. I like looking forward to apricots, cherries, strawberries etc. and enjoying them while they last. Or preserving them in jam, I still have plenty of last year's apricot jam left (I made a trifle with apricot jam and dried apricots for New Year's Eve).
Incidentally, I'm sure I've seen a recipe somewhere for jam made with dried apricots. And, we did successfully dry apricots in the dehydrator last year, except we overdid them a bit.
I bought some of the reduced south african apricots too I'm afraid. I can't see any harm in it if they are only going to go into a dumpster anyway. Unless I'm helping to drive demand? But I can't see how I'm doing that if I only buy them once they are reduced? Someone way better at working out how supermarkets work than I am will have to answer that one I'm afraid.
There's a dried apricot jam recipie in my jam maker instructions. I think it basically involves soaking the fruit over night to reconstitute them and them proceeding as normal. I'll have a look in the morning and post the recipie if you want it.
Morrisons strike again
This was me at too early o'clock this morning. 12 punnets of Egyptian strawberries at 69p per punnet.
Using one of Delias preserves recipies, worked well last time, 4 Kilner jars and one small jam jar lasted 3 weeks.
As long as it gets eaten I am happy, better for all as there are no preservatives in it.
