It is just too hard.
Too, too hard.
Only one entry allowed per person.
But which jam?
The Great Wellington Jam-Off is being held in March during a City Market. Picking a jam to enter is proving very, very difficult. I love the look of my sweet orange jelly I made last year during citrus madness. My blackberry jam is beautiful and thick. I've even had good feedback about the marmalade....I think that there is a possibility that I make too much jam. It seems to be hobby that sneaks up on you - I didn't think that I was actually making all that much - just small amounts here and there. But I guess I sent out a lot of jam goodwill last year during Citrus Madness because I'm very well stocked with jams from friends at the moment. So much jam - I'm actually trying to come up with some recipes that use jam as I just do not eat enough toast to get through it all.
If you are in Wellington and enjoy jam making I strongly recommend that you consider entering. I have sampled a lot of delicious jam lately so I know that there are some strong contenders out there!
Also, and I'm about to use shouty caps on this next bit, the Great Wellington Jam-Off website contains MAPS OF THE BEST LOCATIONS IN WELLINGTON TO SCAVENGE FOR BLACKBERRIES.
