A lack of blogging caused by overwork and the run up to the Great Arundel Flower & Produce Show. Not quite in the league of the Great British Bake off but some of the entries were up there with the best. Some of the work on the allotment paid off, apart from having so much food we can’t keep up it, with a few wins. Not boasting but the chillies, apples, beetroot and figs won places as did the Spiced Redcurrant Jelly (recipe to follow). But a bit of a no show on the jam and chutney front. Mrs Beetons Plum Jam didn’t get anywhere – must try harder and my compost was ‘oversieved’. These local shows are great fun have a go.
