Hedgerow Harvest ... Tastes of Autumn

Hello Ladies.

Lots of pictures today, so I'll keep my waffling brief...

Recent Hedgerow Harvests
(two trips down the lane)

Blackberries (destine for Bramble jelly)
Rosehips (soon to be Rosehip Jelly)

Blackberries for "Bramble and Apple Jamming"

Beautiful beginnings, Bramble Jelly.

Smooth and Glossy, Bramble Jelly.

"Chuck it all in", Rosehip Jelly

Plenty of jars, in "jewel like" colours.

... What does one do with 14 jars of jam?!?!

Homemade Bakewell.

Dainty Jam Tarts.

And Gingerbread.

Gingerbread?!?!? I hear you cry!

Yes, Gingerbread was on the cards, but alas no Golden syrup!
That's when that cupboard FULL of Rosehip Jelly comes in handy!

Worked well. Tasted yummy.

And last but not least ...
Did you notice my teaspoons?

Charity shop of course.

Blooming cute.

Thanks for being here.

Lots of Love




  1. Lovely pictures Katie ... I've got chilli jam on the go as I'm writing this! You can never have too much jam, will see you through the cold winter months. That gingerbread sounds lovely! xxx

  2. Yummy, yummy, yummy!!! These wonderful photos have made me SO hungry!!! Now I'm craving tarts! Can you send me one through the post, please?

  3. Glorious jellies Katie! Ooh I do love gingerbread at this time of year :)

  9. Yum. Your hedgerow has thrown up lots of tasty rewards for you. Love those dainty little spoons.

  10. You have been busy! Thanks for the idea about the rosehip jelly..I will have to try that one time (we have a lot of wild rosehips down the hill from us, just crying out to be picked). Very interesting about using it in gingerbread as well.
    I agree those teaspoons are blooming cute indeed :)
    I hope you are having a lovely weekend x

  11. What to do with all your jam? Save a pot for me for April when I am back East of course! ;-)
