Despite him indoors butchering the damson tree a couple of months back, it did recover sufficiently to bear some fruit. Sadly, much of it is past its best, but I did gather a kilo or two of usable fruits this evening, and so I'm trying a damson, marrow and ginger jam.
I had a very large marrow that I bought from the toy shop (of all places!) in Taunton - they had a glut from their allotment, so they were selling it outside their store. I had a look on Pinterest for recipes with both ingredients. This is a hybrid because I couldn't decide between spiced marrow jam, or marrow and damson, so I've smushed therm all together. Totally experimental, so fingers crossed for a tasty outcome.
Lots of long, slow cooking required before I even get to the stage where the sugar goes in, so I may need to finish this off tomorrow. 🤔
