  1. I love making chutney, but usually run out before the next lot has had time to mature. Yours looks good.

    1. Gaynor I don't like making chutney but I do like eating it!!! Cooking time is too long for me. Jams and jellies are so much quicker and I always use sugar jam and jelly to speed things up. We have so many quince still to go and I have no shelf space left, we cannot eat it fast enough! The figs are almost over, but there are still the medlars to come after the quince!!! Hope you are enjoying the better weather, when are you coming back here? Diane x

  2. Happy "month of October", Diane! You've been really busy in the past Month! Thanks for sharing your "life" with us (holidays, entertainment, gardening, cooking!..etc......) through the eye of your camera!
    I'm not familiar with medlars mentioned in your reply above! Not a very well known fruit! Does it taste like a crab apple jelly? You might be interested by David Lebovitz blog on that subject!

    Fall is my favorite season, especially here in Canada! Please continue your great work! Maguy

    1. Thanks Maguy again for the kind comment. I make my medlar jelly much the same way as the recipe you have linked to. I never pick my medlars though, I collect the fallen ones and they rot quite quickly as they are already heading that way :-) I have never tasted crab apple jelly so I cannot answer your question. I think it is quite similar though to quince jelly, and when in jelly form they are much the same colour. Have a good week Diane
