    Those look luscious.  Ours were small and dry after a long drought this summer.

    Harvested chillies yesterday and made sweet chilli jam with garlic and ginger.

    Lots left so some Asian chilli jam coming up and no doubt, some of the usual recipe too.

     No idea why they are so huge. They came with the house and are tucked in a narrow space between the greenhouse and next doors fence. The just seem to go on growing and ripening. The clusters don't all ripen at once. Just the biggest one first then the next and next and so on. I've been picking them for about 6 weeks and there are still plenty left. Mostly untouched by the birds too.

    So many apples left yesterday I decided just to juice them all.  Delicious. But.........

    did I read on here a while back that apple juice will freeze well?

    also is there a trick to stop it separating so quickly?. I like to mix mine half and half with water, adding ice
