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!

Apparently, we are having a particularly bountiful autumn.  I guess we’re coming to the end of it now, and the berries left in the hedgerows are looking a bit sorry for themselves. Back in September, however, it was a different story. The hedgerows were weighed down with ripening  blackberries, rosehips, elderberries and haws. Our crab apple tree was looking beautiful, full of yellowy-pinky-red fruits. I couldn’t bear the thought of them all being kicked under the hedge or squished under car when they fell, so I decided to get jelly-making. Hedgerow jelly-making, to be precise.
