We have been collecting raspberries and brambles in the lane near school and making jam. Then a colleague, kindly, brought in plums and apples from her farm. So we all practised using a butter knife to chop up plums and apples to make more jam. Our favourite recipe is for plum and cinnamon jam.
We also used a traditional apple press to make our own apple juice. We all took turns to mulch and squash the apples it was hard work. “Don’t break it!” we were warned by one student. After that we all enjoyed the apple juice. Some quotes from the students:
“That actually tastes really good”
“Thumbs up from me!”
