Plum Rum Conserve for Chris Murphy | Manor House 1690

6.00

Chris Murphy is the former Head Gardener of Myddelton House in Enfield and a dear friend. I met her at the launch of my shop in Crowland, where she was dressed head to toe in 17th century costume, convincingly, albeit rather reluctantly. She launched into conversation apropos nothing at all in the way old friends do. I was intrigued. Of late our friendship has become more veracious: she has generously ferried me around in her bright yellow motor car, Buttercup for over 
three months, after my driving licence was revoked (for a crime I did not commit, I might add). I would have been lost, bored and bankrupt without her. Chris’s stories are wry and dry, arrestingly expressed and often with a flamboyant, old-school rolling of her Rs. She remains however the kind of person who has the capacity to shout, ‘Wanker’ with a distinctly North London twang when rudely cut up on the road. This lady has true grit (most of which is under her fingernails). I love her to bits. This jam is her favourite.

Ingredients: plums, fair trade sugar, raisins, almonds, dark rum
