Charity

Money raised through the sale of jams and chutneys is shared between a small group of charities.

So far this year we've raised:

£107

Generally, the money is divided evenly between the North West Air Ambulance and Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association.

Exceptions to this include sales of Lemon Curd, where the money goes to the British Heart Foundation (in memory of Seaweed Neal), and money raised during November 2010 which was given to the Movember Foundation.

 

Last year

In 2010 we raised £185, split like this:

Coming soon...

The following flavours will be available as soon as I've got (a) enough jars, (b) all the ingredients and (c) enough time:

  • Jasmine Tea & Lime Jelly
  • Tomato, Apple & Chilli Chutney
  • Strawberry & Rhubarb
Why bother?

I like making jam. I also like making chutney. The trouble is you can't always make small quantities of it, especially when you've got lots of fruit or vegetables to use up.


I've tried giving it away to people and that worked for a while, but there's only so much jam or chutney a person can eat in a given period. When you offer people stuff for free, they feel like they should accept even if they don't want it - not to do so could make them sound both crazy and rude.


So I stopped pestering people but the jam kept piling up.


Finally I decided that the only way to get rid of it was to sell it for charity. That way, people can choose to buy some if they want to and they'll feel good because they're giving to a good cause.


It won't raise a lot but every little helps.
