raspberry and violet jam

I want to tell you about some jam.

I’m not 100% sure when raspberry season finishes – I misjudged the end of the summer season, and had to drive the whole way across the county to find mine – but I’m hoping there might be some autumn ones where you live, and that this post isn’t a month too late (or, depending on your point of view, 10 months too early).

If not, there’s always the possibility that you made the same slight error of quantity judgement as me: I’d forgotten to ask how many grams a punnet held, and turned up at the counter of a place where they’d told me there aren’t many raspberries left, but you might find a few, I suppose with two and a half kilos in bulging plastic punnets.
