It may only be August, but there’s a definite autumnal feeling going around. There’s that telltale crispness in the air, the days are now noticeably shorter, and last week I was seized by the desire to make jam. So, after bringing home a rather ridiculous quantity of scrumped apples and elderberries I spent Sunday morning making jelly.
I ran out of jars, which is why I ended up having to use the wee taster sized pots too, but I think they’re actually quite a good idea as I can send little pots to friends who are further afield.
I still had quite a lot of apples left over, so I also made some apple cupcakes (recipe from here). The recipe worked well; I substituted demerara sugar for the golden caster sugar, which gave the cakes a little bit of crunch, and meant that they are very similar to banana bread in texture and taste – just with apples instead of banana. Yum!
I’ve still got an inordinate amount of apples left, so I’m hoping to get some more jars this week…
