The Best Fruit in Autumn
Yesterday was an ideal preserving day - overcast, sometimes raining and not too cold. So I set about making Feijoa jam. From 1.5 kgs of fruit I got 5 jars of jam - mmmm! yummy! Fortunately half the bushes we planted are the 'Mammoth' variety so some of the fruit is much bigger than what is sold in the supermarkets. Best source of vitamin C for this time of year.
