11/09/2015   Photo a Day  I taste

 My favourite jams are Quince Jelly and Apple Jelly , this is my current jar a birthday present from Julie and I am enjoying the taste of it when I have toast for breakfast (which isn't very often!).
The taste brings back many memories because my mother made lots of both every year and I often think I should but the thought passes quickly and I go back to just buying some.
