    Your chilli jam is the bomb! And how amazing do all those curry pastes look – you’re much better than me, I just use the Asian packaged ones. Love that your HXBs fit in the Falcon tin – thanks for the tip! 🙂

    What fabulous looking canned goods. I am a sucker for homemade jams, pastes, curries, relishes etc, especially in pretty jars! Those are also some beautiful looking hot cross buns.

    Hi Liz, I love everything in your kitchen this month. I’m very impressed with all the home made goodies, and I must confess the tomato relish has me salivating! I’m with your friends; I’d line up to purchase some! 🙂 I look forward to you sharing your recipe when you’re happy with it! x

    I think your ego deserves a hit! What a legend, 8 dozen HCB’s. I could eat a dozen myself I think. Love all the preserves, really make a difference don’t they?

    What a fabulous lot of preserving! I am envious of all those lovely chilis. It must have been a lot of work peeling and chopping but how wonderful to have all those lovely jars in mid winter.

    I hope you post the recipe for the tomato relish.

    what a fabulous lot of preserving Liz, it really is the time of year for dealing with that end of summer harvest – love your Weck jars too, they’re such a lovely simple style. I’m another that’s envious of your cross piping, but after 8 dozen it’s not surprising you’re proficient!

    If you visit my IMK you’ll see my hot cross buns were a CAR CRASH, mostly because of my the crosses!!! (there are videos on my instagram which show the true extent of how bad they were!).
    Yours look SO GORGEOUS!
