With our bounty of Kiwi Fruit we picked over the weekend, many people suggested making jam out of the excess. To tell the truth I have never attempted to made jam. Mum use to make jam, pickles, chutneys and preserve fruit. I have lovely memories of fruit bubbling away on the stove top, jars in the oven - cupboards packed with all her preserved produce. Ian's mother makes jam regularly and often we go home with a lovely jar of rich red raspberry jam or golden preserved peaches.
