Brilliant job, thanks. I do a lot of jam making and enjoy the fruits of our labours, (literally) throughout the winter. I come from a line of jam makers and bottlers, and any encouragement for others to start is welcome. I will try the drying next. Fruit syrups are also good, especially elderflower syrup. Lasts ages, and perfume of spring (and maybe a little 'cat' - but that's elderfower!) brings Spring to Winter.

Glad you liked the piece. Preserving is a lot of hard work, but as you say it brings Spring into Winter.Good luck with the drying!

I picked up a good tip recently regarding drying tomatoes: put them on a rack and leave them in the car on a hot day, in full sun, with the windows closed. Harvest all that free heat and turn the car into an oven!
