I shouldn't be putting this up, as it will no doubt diminish my chances of winning, but thought there might be some interest out there...Aesop's Fitzroy store have gone all CWA and are having a competition for Langham Melbourne Masterclass tickets for the best fruit preserves- I love it, though a shame I'm not that good at making jam.
I'm going to give it a crack- I've bought a kilo of plums, now just need a good recipe.
Here the details from their email:
