I have got some work being done in my kitchen and as usual they want to get into the garage to run the power cables in. Well I never lose anything in my garage i just can never find anything if you know what i mean. Well I was clearing some boxes and opened one to find 24 jars of strawberry jam I had made ( and forgotten about) in 2004. I opened one up and took the fur coat off the surface and tasted it. Well the sugar has combined with the natural yeast in the strawberry to turn the jam into about 100% proof pure alcohol with a taste of strawberry. It nearly blew my head off. I reckon it will go well with roasted groundhog YB. Any polite suggestions to what I can do with it to make it reasonably safe to eat on bread or in a cake.I am talking about 23 jars of 2lb each, a lot of jam.

You ARE in a JAM!!

Sorry, I couldn't resist!!! UHHH , send some here! I'm crazy about it on my soda bread! Seriously you might have to ditch them because they aren't what we call 'in code" I'm not an expert but you could get sick, please don't take a chance.

Now I'm really worried

I just hope Stuie don't come visiting, at least if so leaves some for me. Yes we do have spirits in Sussex. I have one in my garden, I have seen it on a few seperate occasions(not after eating the jam) over the last 5 years. But to get back to the jam I don't go along with this 'coding jazz'. I go into the market and buy a few tomatoes, take them home and as and when eat them. Go into a supermarket buy some tomatoes in a tray marked with sell by date, use by date. This is a new idea that promotes waste and I personally go by common sense not rubbishy regulations. I have found one use for me jam. Take 1 good spoonful of jam, 1 good spoonful of ice cream, 1/2 pint of cream, whizz in a blender pour and drink. Bloody great. This is going to do my angina a power of good.Doc reckons a little alcohol is good for me in moderation.

Blacksheep!

You are bringing back memories of a painful night and next morning when I was in college.
