So when I saw that Wellington Museums were going to have a series of workshops at Nairn Cottage called "Nairn Cottage Preservation Society" including a workshop on jam making I was pretty excited. I thought my friend Shell would be excited too so I asked her to come along.
I hadn't visited Nairn Street Cottage for years but its an old historic cottage complete with historic gardens. The gardens include an old crab apple tree which seemed to be pretty prolific, so that's why we were making crab apple jelly.
When we came back from the tour of the garden the fruit wasn't quite finished boiling so we stopped for a cup of tea.
Finally the jelly was poured into jars for us all to take home - some was more set than others!
We finished off our jam making morning by taking a few more photos in the lovely gardens.
