    Where did you get all the fruit from? I’d have made more jam this year but for the fact that fruit is very expensive!

    Is the Sneinton Grape some rare varietal used in local Nottingham wine making? “I’m getting red fruit, I’m getting iodine, I’m getting tar – no, bitumen, with just a slight hint of the Trip on a Thursday night in February…”
    OK, maybe it’s just me.

    Leigh: Fruit from a variety of sources. Grapefruit from Sheikhs, the very good value Asian shop over the road. Strawberries from, er, JS, but hopefully will grow our own next year as strawberry jam definitely a favourite. Blackberries from “the Gillam Estate” (ie Cllr Gillam’s garden). Apples from a friend’s allotment. Still trying to decide whether to get an allotment of my own.

    Sad thing is, even when using ‘found’ fruit, it’s probably still cheaper to buy jam.

    Stephen: Sneinton is the suburb we live in. The grapes grow in our garden — photo of last year’s. We didn’t tend the vine properly, (ie cutting it back or watering it so that the grapes get to a decent size) so the only thing really left to do with tiny, seedy grapes was to turn them into jelly.
