Incorrigible hoarder!

I have a lovely electric jam pan which I bought when I could no longer stand for long enough to stir the jams and chutneys which I love to make.  I am an enthusiast so in 2014 I made enough preserves to feed a small army and put out an appeal among my friends and family for jam jars.

2015 saw me eating my way through my stores and I didn't need to make any more but the jam jars kept coming.  And coming.  And coming.  And coming.

I shall be getting the jam pan out again this year and was confident that I would have enough jars.  Enough?  I sorted fifty to give away to a friend who makes jam to sell for charity and I still have plenty for my own use. 

So that's fifty jars, thirty doggie items, seventeen books and three miscellaneous items - my first hundred items GONE!

And there's plenty left where that came from.


  1. I asked people t save small jars for me and milk bottle tops. I've had to tell them to stop as I have no space for any more! You'll have to show us the pan I've never heard of one.

  2. I wish I was closer. I buy more every year because jam jars never make it back.

  3. I have never made jam but I think it would be fun. Maybe you should sell it!
