Preserving in Autumn

Autumn is a time of plenty and a great time to preserve some of the lovely autumnal produce on our doorsteps.

Apples, pears, plums, damsons, crab apples, medlars and quince if you’re lucky enough to grow or find them.

What’s in Season in Autumn?

My quince trees have come to an end this year due to a common blight but I’m planning on planting some new varieties that apparently will grow well here.

And then there’s the last of the tomatoes if you grow your own make a superb chutney to see you through the winter or make a lovely warming bowl of tomato and basil soup.

Tomato & Basil Soup

All the jellies and chutneys are delicious served with cheese or ham and make a great addition to lunch.

I love to cook and eat with the season and you can read more about what’s in season this autumn in my blog post.
