    10 pots Quince and Apple jelly and another 8 jars of Courgette and pepper pickle. BTW Nicos, if you use the French sugar for confiture or jelly you should have no problem. I even had Strawberry jam that set rather too much!

    Oh nearly forgot, the 8 jars of Apple chutney and 6 jars (sterilized) of Apple compot. Stole the bramleys for MIL in the UK!!!!!!!
