As with most families, my wife and I share the daily tasks. When it comes to Jam making, I do the Bramble Jelly, and Lady Magnon does the rest.
I tend to retreat to Haddock's when Lady M is in the kitchen, but occasionally I'm recalled in order to find a missing ingredient, or her glasses, or to fill in the labels.
'What do you want me to write on this one?' I asked.
'Apricot, you clot!' she replied.
We also have some red jam called 'Oh for goodness sake, can't you see what it is', and others called 'Look, I'm busy, OK!'.
I've recently noticed that we're right out of 'Get out of my kitchen, and take those bloody dogs with you'. And I'm hoping she'll soon be making some more of her delicious 'Just write down what it bloody well looks like',
It's good to have wide selection of interesting jams in the cupboard.
