Re: I went crazy today...

Here, here...i make jars and jars of chutneys and jams from foraged stuff, what i've grown or what people give me. I too find it relaxing and therapeutic. Although my daughter and i don't eat all of it i give loads away or sell them at charity coffee mornings.
Keep it up everyone :iconbiggrin:
