What’s that I see there in the sky?….a burning ball of yellow! My gosh summer is here (finally). Daydreaming of hazy evening picnics is slowly turning into a reality.

Here’s my vintage picnic wish list and essential items

1. The Hamper

What’s more classic than homemade scones and strawberry jam. My delightfully yummy scone recipe is on a previous post. Here’s an easy peasy jam recipe:
Ingredients
– 400g strawberries cut in half
– 450g caster sugar
– 4 tsp fresh lemon juice
Place the strawberries and sugar into a medium size saucepan. Bring to a simmer stirring frequently. Continue to simmer for 1 hr stirring occasionally. Once thick or to the constancy you like add the lemon juice and pour into sterilised jam jars.

4. Crockery
