  3. I was blog hoppin to day and came across your blog - glad I did! These look great! Today I posted a Chia Seed Giveaway on my blog if you want to enter but the reason I mention it is to answer your questions about preserves I have made - well, I made this Strawberry Chia Jam a while back which I linked to in today's post when I speak about the giveaway that turned out super awesome and it was so simple! YAY!

    1. Wow! Chia jam sounds brilliant; I guess you can make chia jams raw as you already have the jelly part? Will check it out. Thanks for commenting :)

  4. Superfun roundup! My dad used to make the most yumful chutneys and marmalades, often spiked or spiced. My favorite was his simple chunky orange marmalade...every time I have English muffins I wish I had his recipe so I could pile on some sunshiney sweet orange goodness! :)

    1. Thanks for your comments. Marmalade is so delicious, and great on muffins or crumpets! I also like it in a sandwich with veggie sausage; sounds weird, but really nice. Marmalade was originally from Portugal, where it was made with quinces. Maybe in January when we get Valencia oranges, I'll make a marmalade recipe.... :) And you're right; the damson jelly is very good with vegan icecream (perhaps even better with vegan pancakes too ;) )
