I love plums, and can’t wait to make one of our favourite plum jam with fresh bay leaves, vanilla and Brandy… I named this jam Plum Coquette…

I am still working on raspberries, strawberries and blueberries.. The blueberry jam infused with fresh mint and lemon balm was very well received at the market, especially on those sizzling summer days…

Lavender and Hyssop are in full bloom…ready to share their fragrant essence to the lemon marmalade…

This lemon marmalade is made with thin slices of lemon suspended in a bright and fruity yet slightly tart jelly. The two marvelous flavours of lavender and hyssop blend in perfect harmony to add an herbal note.
