  1. Greengage is almost my favourite jam with gooseberry probably just beating it. Both are brilliant on scones and sourdough toast.

    I can’ t remember ever having such a fantastic crop as this year. I love them, your name looks beautiful.

    Sorry, I mean jam. This predictive text drives me nuts.

    Who needs words with such lovely photos of Greengage Jam? My mouth is watering and we only have strawberry jam!

  5. Oh, I love all kinds of plum jam! Greengages, sure, but also damsons.

    • Damson jam is certainly delicious, especially in chocolate cake. It’s got a great fruity taste. Greengage jam is much more mellow and honey like …. better on toast I think. Whereas our Victoria plums never make it to the pot !

  6. What a delicious post, just the colour is mouth-watering. I love damsons, alas, the only stone fruit to do really well around here are the small purple Blaisdon plums, some years the boughs are so overladen they break! I wonder why they haven’t split this year?
