Pickles, Chutneys, Jams and Pastes

Sun-Blushed Tomatoes

I love sun-blushed Tomatoes, they are sweet and soft, can be eaten on salads in pasta dishes or just on their own with bread. The Tomatoes here in Spain are so tasty so I decided to make a jar. You can also use the oil for frying onions or making sauces….

Nispero Jam 

With the abundance of Nispero’s on my Aunt and Uncles land I had to think fast of what to do with the fruit I had picked this weekend.  Nispero’s if not cut at the stalk do not keep long and bruise quickly…this was something I found out when googling recipes…after I had picked them!  Therefore I had … Continue reading Nispero Jam 

Apricot Jam

This recipe uses up a lot of tom’s but makes such a small amount as it is a concentrate which is kinda great as its using them but also saving us the fridge space ;-)….and it is really really delicious.
