So yeah, jam! -Jammin' Jelly Exchange

Molly over at Batter Splattered hosted her second annual Jammin' Jelly Exchange this year. This fun event has participants from around the world exchanging jam and jelly. I won't tell you what kind of jelly I sent off because I don't believe it has arrived at the final destinastion in Norway! My jelly arrived a little over a week ago from Rebecca who has a blog, but it is set to private. Only I will get to see what my jam looked like in London! I was so excited to get not one, but two jars of Jelly from Rebecca. The best part is that I had no idea what one of them was "Greengage and Gooseberry". I had no idea what a greengage might be, a fruit, a berry...
It turns out to be a type of plum. The jars arrived well packed and were absolutely beautiful! Who cares what the jelly tastes like, check out these jars...
Rebecca included a card with a nice note about why I ended up with two jars. She was a little nervous sending out the "cham" as she called it. This would be a cross between a chutney and a jam, I guess it set a little too solid. I still have yet to try it, but if it is anywhere near as tasty as the bramble and elderflower I will be in for a treat. Rebecca recommended the Greengage with cheese, so I will wait for a special occasion. Thanks so much to Rebecca for all the time she put in to making this treat and to Molly for hosting the Jammin' Jelly Exchange. I am in for next year!


  1. You should know that I received a notice from the Norwegian Postal Service this very afternoon, notifying that there is a package sent from the states waiting for me at the post office in town! Now I know who it was from Can't wait to pick it up tomorrow!

  2. Wow, that's my jam! I can't believe it's now famous. I really hope the cham does itself proud, and that you enjoy the new flavour.

    My package arrived this week, and I can't wait to post about it.

    I am already thinking up ideas for the next round!

  3. What a treat! If the jam taste half as cute as the jars are, you know it's a winner. :)

  4. So pretty and is that a nod to Eddie Izzard on the tag? Love it! :)
