how many? … winner

A jar of roasted tomato and haw berry ketchup is on it’s way to Jo’s table in Peterborough.  I hope she enjoy’s sampling it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Thank you to everyone who took part.  I’ve obviously made a name for myself as totally potty when it comes to preserving – most of you guessed it would be over 100!

ps. the screen shot above is the answer emailed to myself before the giveaway was posted, just to be sure I wouldn’t forget!  Jo was closest with 107.

    MC – i thought you hadn’t guessed because you had more chutneys than you knew what do with too!

    Miss M – you’re a girl after my own heart! I think there were a couple of lemon surprises behind the kilner jars and the small jars on the left of the bottom shelf are 3 deep. a valiant attempt and you weren’t alone in the counting judging by the closeness of the other answers. Had you won I would have created a little ‘genius’ badge for you in lieu of the jar :o)

    Congratulations, Jo! Roasted tomato and haw berry ketchup sounds wonderful. I made homemade ketchup for the first time this year and it is wonderful.

    Just a note to say thanks and that the Roasted tomato and haw berry ketchup has been used up to every last tasty little morsel we could get out of the pot. Great with baked ham and lovely with jacket potatoes. Thanks

    so pleased to hear that Jo. It was a bit of an experiment so I was keeping my fingers crossed when you chose that one over some of more reliably taste tested jars :o|)

When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.

As you can imagine I didn't get much gardening done that day!  Seems crazy how quickly the years have gone, our bump will be 6 next week!
