Hearts of Jam


It's been yonks and yonks since I bit into a jam sandwich. In fact, I may have been about 10 and still in Kenya. The jam probably came out of a tin and instead of butter it was probably Blueband (which also came out of a tin). I remember that it was a real treat back then and I used to really savour my jam sarnies. 







Today I cut off the crusts, I butter one side with Lurpack and the other with Bonne Maman Raspberry jam. Mamma would shake her head at me BUT she would be smiling that knowing smile.

  8. Jam sandwiches were a mighty treat back in my childhood, I usually just got 2 slices of dry bread with a slice of tomato.
    Now excuse me, I have a date with a loaf of hoity toity artisan from the shop with the unpronounceable French name and a jar of All Gold Connoisseur's Seville Orange jam.
