The Village Picnic

It was Bikefest, in the middle of the heatwave. We were in a tent. People came and tasted preserves and some entered them into competion. Thank you people! We had a Blood Orange Jelly, a Fresh Mango Chutney, a Chilli Jam and a couple of Fig Jams as well as some of our own preserves to try. We also had shiny black judging ribbons, which might've been my highlight, seeing everyone looking so official. Some more over on the Squeaky Wheel blog.
