Just in time for my festive craft-making, comes this unusual source of inspiration.
Bonne Maman’s Seasonal Cookbook is not only jam-packed (‘scuse the pun) with ingenius recipes using jam – such as Herby Lamb with Woodland Dressing (it uses the Woodland Berry Conserve as a glaze) and the delicious-sounding Raspberry Frangipane Tarts – but the new book also has some fantastic ideas (and images) on what to do with your empty pots afterwards.
Save those cute little mini jars and make a novel Advent Calendar.
Fill empty jars with home-baked goodies.
Or make lovely lanterns.
