Summer fruits are very popular for making jams, fruit tarts and crumbles. They are also full of flavour all on their own!
The fresh jams are delicious! We use raspberries, strawberries, gooseberries and blackberries to make them. Fresh berries with cream is a favourite summer treat everywhere.
Rhubarb is another favourite. It ripens earlier in the summer. Did you know that it’s really a vegetable and not a fruit?
