With the last of the damsons I made some jam.
I bubbled and boiled it in the pan,
then put it in jars and left it to set.
I’m itching to try it but it’s too hot yet!

I’ve only one little jar of homemade raspberry jam left… (mine all mine haa-haw-he-he!) OK I might share it with my hubby.

Very cute! Homemade jam is the BEST.

We don’t eat a lot of jam but it is nice to have some homemade. My mother used to make lots of different sorts. New batch has been tested and declared up to scratch by my hubby!

My abiding memory of damson jam is of my mother not bothering to remove the stones – NOT a happy experience!

It is difficult to get all the stones out and I try my best, last year I succeeded but this year I think I can spy a stone in one of the jars!

Not familiar with Damson Jam but I’m sure it is delicious! I live in Washington State, US and love to get to know more about other countries.

Damsons are a small, deep purple member of the plum family, often a bit sour to eat but they do make wonderful jam and wine. If you use them in a pie or similar they do need plenty of sugar.
