We managed to collect about one and a half pounds of bilberries at Brimham Rocks on Sunday. Eleanor wanted to bake some muffins with some of them, so I used about a pound to turn in to jam.
They're such a lovely colour when they're boiling in the pan.
Eleanor made a batch of scones so that we had something to spread the bilberry jam on. Delicious.
I shouldn't be eating bilberry jam on scones but my healthy eating regime, which I started at the start of the year, has gone right out the window since the start of the school holidays when we went to Cornwall. I ate lots of things which I shouldn't have done and I just don't seem to be able to get back on track. I'm not stressing about it, I'm sure once normality sets in again when the schools go back next week, I'll get back in the swing.
