This year’s crop of British berries is a bumper one, thanks to the wet summer in 2012 followed by this year’s hot, sunny one. Make the most of this abundance of sweet, juicy berries to create your own fresh, homemade jam. From the UK’s obsession with the Great British Bake Off to Brad Pitt flying to France for his favourite pots of jam, homemade jam is having a moment.

Impress your friends : Chicken Liver Pate with Blackberry Chutney / Brandied chicken liver pate with quick cook blackberry and red onion chutney
Making your own party canapés needn’t be fiddly. The pate can be made in less than 15 minutes the day before then simply spread on toasted ciabatta and topped with a little watercress and a spoonful of this very moreish blackberry chutney.

Retro favourite- This is a great dessert for a special dinner as it can be made early on in the day and left to set in the fridge. Just peel away the paper before you serve them. If you would like to decorate the soufflés, add a few tiny blackberries and mint leaves to the top or dust lightly with a little sifted icing sugar at the very last minute.

Really easy. Rather than cutting the bread into triangles, lemon curd sandwiches have been made then cut into cubes and scattered into the dish with a generous sprinkling of blueberries for an easy comforting winter pudding.

Great gift - Unlike sloe gin, this strawberry version only needs 3 days to stand for the flavours to develop.
Strain and decant into a pretty bottle or several smaller ones, then add a handmade label and ribbons for a personalised Christmas gift. Delicious served with ice and chilled tonic.

Impress your friends...
Need a quick and easy dessert that will create a stir, then this easy cherry compote fits the bill, add a splash of Cointreau or brandy at the end, warm through then light with a long match, stand well back and wait for the applause.

A great dessert to serve after a summer barbecue. You don’t have to be a child to love eating an ice cream cone, dip bought waffle cones in melted chocolate and chopped nuts or sugar sprinkles then fill with scoops of creamy homemade ice cream.
