Mixed Berry Freezer Jam 6

Sometimes in the kitchen I find I make things for the simple fact that I can. It’s been ages since I’ve even thought of freezer jam, let alone making it, then one day while shopping I came across ‘Freezer Jam Pectin’ from Bernardin. The picture on the packet was a […]

Zucchini Pancakes 2

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Ever since I started experimenting with two ingredient banana pancakes my mind naturally turned to the question: “what other ingredient would work in place of the banana…?” Such a simple yet immensely enjoyable recipe must surely be open to alteration, I thought. The first thing that came to mind…? Sweet potato. Cooked and mashed […]
