Hello, I need to make a variety of preserves for a charity stall by July - by which time the soft fruits won't be available for jam. Any suggestions before then? - I've made orange marmalade, lemon and lime marmalade, grapefruit marmalade and spicy chutney. Suggestions please! How do I fill the jam remit?

I thought it was a reasonable question...

What about lemon curd?

My favourite jam ever is damson, but I don't know when they become available.

Mango chutney would be a winner?

If you are desparate for other fruit, go and see the veg wholeseller and see what he has that is just on the turn, which you could buy a bit cheaper.

Blackcurrant, raspberry, gooseberry, all excellent jams, only leaves greengage and damson of the really tip top jam fruits.

How about going down the savoury route? There's always Onion Marmalade, and what about some salsa's or relishes?
