I like to write about simple healthy living. This blog has evolved over a few years and includes some time living in the country and enjoying raising chickens, walking dogs and growing our own veggies. We are back in the city for a while to build the bank account so that we can retire back in the country in the not too distant future. Till then it's two days at a time.

Cherry Tomato and Sweet Chilli Jam

We have bucket loads of Cherry tomatoes that grow out of the chicken coop hay and manure that I put on the garden.  This weekend I tried my hand at making Jam for the first time.  I found this recipe to use up some of my Cherry tomatoes. It was so good I made a second batch.  http://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/recipes/cherry-tomato-and-sweet-chilli-jam

Ready for bottling

The finished product.  It's very tasty on crackers with cheese !

On My Mind....................

It looks like being a hot weekend here so it will be lots of swimming in the dam for the puppies.

Lilly looks like she is about to eat Layla but it's just puppy play.

On My Mind.................

One of the great things about spring is the beautiful sunrises.  This was the one I left on Monday morning to come back to the city.

Looking forward to being home again tonight.
