It’s all about the colour, the fragrance and the feeling that summer has finally started to settle in…
Although this year my garden raspberries are not as plump and abundant as last year, this won’t stop me from making raspberry and lavender jam…(Those you see in the pic are from my friend Inês’s kitchen garden! ..Thanks…Inês!)
Here is what you need:
*600g of fresh ripe raspberries
*About 200g of castor sugar
*1 small lemon
*2 or 3 lavander stems and leaves
Simply start by washing the raspberries…
Add the sugar, the lemon juice and zest.
Bring to a boil over high heat stirring every now and then……once it is boiling…add the lavender stems and leaves…lower the heat and let it simmer for about 3-4 minutes.
When the jam starts to foam, remove it from the heat….enjoy…
