On to the next round of hedgerow jelly! I made this bramble and elderberry jelly back in September when the hedgerows were still brimming with berries. I used to love bramble jelly as a child, so I thought I’d try to recreate that. While I was foraging for blackberries, I spied an elder tree so picked some elderberries too, for a bit of a kick!

Mmmm… English muffins. How hard could they be to make? Actually, not hard at all. I was inspired by the beautiful photos on this post over at Pinch My Salt. Looking at the recipe though, I was slightly put off because I didn’t have any buttermilk, so I had a look around for alternative recipes and found this one by Delia — no buttermilk! I’ll have to try the other recipe another time.
