The colours and smells of our autumn ...

Blackberries and apples from my Mum's house - we 'found' three apple trees laden with fruit that we didn't know were there!!
 
 
 Damsons from a tree that is split in two, chewed on by cows, totally neglected but continues to produce fruit.  Unfortunate most were way out of reach.  Topped up with some fruit from a friend's tree ...
 
Blackberry pudding .... very easy and very delicious ...

 
Plums, from a friend's tree, thrown into the pan with all the other ingredients for plum sauce.  The smell was divine ...

 
The satisfaction when it is all bottled up ...

 
Straining the blackberries and apples for Bramble & Apple Jelly ...
 
 
all bottled and labelled ...

 
Just love the jewel like colours of this with the sunlight catching it ...

 
And the damsons ... here is the gin!  Just got to wait 3 months now ...

 
it didn't quite all fit in!  I had to decant into a better container.  This colour is after only 3 days ... and it tasted quite nice too!
