Playing with my food...

Oops! This may look rather gloopy - and I'm afraid to say, a bit like a disemboweled hen.

Trust me though, this is bubblin' gooseberries in a pan. Rosy, rich-red and ripe with a lemon thrown in for pectin boost. Tomorrow we make jelly with this late crop.

Today, however, we hover over the pan with the camera, lens steamed up, getting quite excited as the images become more abstract. I have a fleeting thought about converting them to wall-sized canvases before commonsense gets a grip. Converting berries to jelly will suffice I think.

I like the one with the yellow berry that looks like a blazing sun in a red sky.
Just send over a jar, please.

Yum yum sounds fab. You are welcome to drop off a jar in the village any time :-)

Hubble telescope meets er... medical microscope? Do show us the finished result!

I'm doing the same with the late crop of rhubarb today.

Those pics are gorgeous - yes I can see them as big canvasses across a wall too!!

Gorgeous photos. What with the steaming up of the glasses and the camera with the dodgy batteries, I don't think I would ever get any images like these!
