Recipe for a perfect Jam and Chutney making session.Ingredients
One lovely sunny Autumn day
10 delightful people who enjoy cooking
Ingredients fresh from the garden (+ a few extras)
Some intelligent conversation
A willingness to wash up at the end
Well - we managed that recipe rather well. Our group really enjoyed making our 2 signature preserves - Green Tomato Chutney and Merryweather Damson Jam. This time, we also added a new recipe for us - Ajika Salsa. If you follow that link, you might be impressed that we followed a recipe in Georgian (I think?), but we were actually inspired to make it following this version of the recipe from the wonderful Northern Homestead Blog. It proved to be absolutely delicious as a side-dish to refried beans, fresh tomato and coriander salsa and quesadillas (thats 2 tortillas, toasted in a pan with cheese sandwiched between them then flipped so the cheese melts on both sides).
Thanks to all who came to the workshop, and thanks to Nottingham City Homes for sponsoring this as part of the "Just Grow" project.
