It's been over a year since my last post. I miss blogging. I miss that it made me focus on my photography skills.
The light was rather pretty shining down on these freshly sterilised jam jars drying on the Aga. So while I was simmering my cumquats for marmalade, I took a few snaps.
In the last year we have bought a little farm in Red Hill on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. The farm has a rather fabulous kitchen garden, with quite a lot of varied citrus trees. I have been making jams and marmalades like a woman possessed. So far this week I've made strawberry jam, two batches of cumquat marmalade, and lemon marmalade. There has also been cumquat ice-cream in the mix. Now that's something fabulous I recommend everyone should try.
I love these Weck preserving jars. The top shelf of my pantry is now stashing a lovely collection of jams in jars.
I'm still working on identifying the perfect setting point for the jam. This cumquat marmalade is too runny, which, on the bright side, makes it perfect for stirring into ice-cream for the afore-mentioned cumquat ice-cream.
But my main reason for popping in here is to share with you the jam labels I created.
These are just a sample of three of them. There are 11 - five types of marmalade, and 6 different fruit jams from fig to strawberry. They are designed to print onto these labels. But if you didn't want to purchase this specific size, you can get a box of label sheets and cut to whatever size you like. You can download the labels by clicking the button below, or find them in my left sidebar.
