Over the long weekend Kevin, Sebastian and Mavis decided to make something they'd never made before. Inspired by the Queen's birthday they thought they'd make something queen-ish, and what could be more queen-ish than jam! After some toing and froing about what kind of jam they'd make, they agreed on pear and ginger jam. None of them had ever tried it before and it sounded quite excellent and very queen-ish.
One of the best things about making pear and ginger jam is that you get to use the best kitchen utensil ever invented! The apple peeler-corer-cutter! It even looks impressive! Kevin slowly turned the handle while the others watched intently as the peeler-corer-cutter worked its magic.
They then chopped the pear a little more,
grated the ginger and juiced the lemons.
Kevin measured out the sugar while Mavis watched in awe, she'd never seen so much sugar!
Sebastian mixed together the ingredients and stirred and stirred.
Until his arm started to ache, and Mavis took over.
Then it was time for the jarring! Kevin spooned the jam into the jars while the other two made jokes about jarring jams.
Mavis wrote the labels because she has the neatest handwriting and then they waited for the jam to cool.
When the jars had cooled they stuck on the labels and the jam was finished! They discussed whether or not to send a jar to the queen but decided against it, they weren't even sure if she liked ginger. It would probably be best to keep it all for themselves.
