Last year we left the laurel berry picking too late, that by the time we brought the basket to the tree we found the birds beat us to the punch.
This year I thought we did it again, as at first glance the tree appeared sparse of fruit. Turns out there was still loads to go around and I ended up cooking five batches (14 jars of delicious sticky jam🤤).
The sweet almond and cherry aroma wafted through our home and lingered for just the right amount of time.
This is the last of the jars made and I will definitely be experimenting with a chocolate and laurel ice cream flavour really soon (just need to get my hands on more ice cream tins for the freezer).

This plant is just really beautiful. I can’t wait to see her get really frustrated and plump. You know, I say I love my plants. And I’m totally sincere. But what about from their perspective? The shit I put them through: ensuring they remain un-pollinated for their entire flowering cycle. Haha. 🤣. Plants don’t have perspective! [Dave was reincarnated as moss during his next life.
