Foraging in our garden

We are lucky to have various fruit trees/bushes/plants in our garden, including two plum varieties, damson, pear, apple, hawthorn, raspberry, red currant, elderberry, rose hip, strawberry, blackberry, rhubarb and gooseberry.

I’ve been busy over the last few months making rhubarb crumble, rhubarb cordial, rhubarb and ginger jam and rhubarb gin.

Adam’s bottomless stomach has also been filled with plum crumble (which I like to call plumble) and red currant crumble

Damsons are bountiful so, as well as giving many away to friends and family I’ve got gin and damson vodka on the go ready for xmas 🙂

For trips away I’ve made us plum leather and also apple & damson leather.

Finally, we had some pears so I tried pear and ginger coins

Now I have to admit that this last one was a little odd but tasted good. Still it’s better than that time I tried Hog Weed and it was still hairy 😆
