Spring berries

Blue Lilly Pilly

I’ve got this tree, planted many years ago. Still recall being told, it produces sweet, fleshy edible berries. Spring’s almost here and yes, there are berries galore but they are far from sweet.

Absolutely, positively bitter...

Lilly Pilly Jam

You need:
lilly pilly fruit
water
sugar
lemon juice

Method:
1. Boil lilly pilly fruit till soft.
2. Strain. Save the liquid !
3. One cup of sugar for each cup of liquid. Put the liquid, sugar and lemon juice and bring to the boil. Boil until it thickens and jells.
4. Bottle in sterilised jars.
