Valentine's Love in a jar!

What could be more romantic than presenting your Valentine with a jar of "Lover's Jam" made by your own fair hands. If your partner does not have a sweet tooth  consider instead making a savory chutney to accompany a cheese board on Valentine's Day.  Chilli Jams and sauces always warm the heart too. With the thought of a romantic breakfast in bed I have decided to make some "love in a jar" this year. I found an excellent recipe on a blog called Larder  by Karon Grieve. She promises the jam to have aphrodisiac qualities and judging from the list of ingredients it ceetainly looks like a love potion worth making.

You can try your hand at cooking up a jar of love at one of my workshops at the Yorkshire Preservatory; where you can either choose from a range of jams for "lovers" or select your own.
