Care Home Residents Produce Lashbrook House Jam

After a discussion about activities, Colin Outen and  Mary Knapp started talking about how they use to make jam at home. It was the norm. Mary was brought up on a farm. Colin always use to make Jam with his Mother as a young boy. So the fruit was gathered, the jars and jam sugar bought. A Saturday morning activity of making Jam. Everyone helped get the blackberries ready and stir in the sugar. Everyone nominated Colin to go in the kitchen to help make it on the stove. Once ready chilled and set. We all put it into the jam jars. Labelled it, ready to sell at the Lashbrook Christmas Fayre. The best part was licking the bowl at the end. Mary Knapp was reluctant to let the bowl go. Obviously brought back lots of memories, time with her family on the farm making jam.
