Mementoes of Summer

I woke up yesterday with one thought on my mind- heading to the market and buying loads of goodies to make jams and chutneys. At this time of year, there's nothing better than taking advantage of nature's bounty by canning it up in pretty, little jars- just like our grandmothers used to do. It's like saving all the gifts of the summer season as tasty mementoes- the kind you can savor well into those chilly months ahead.
I did my market shopping early and I was very greedy. In fact, I dare say I bought more than I could can in one day.
