Tashja: Re red onion marmalade, I did boil it up a bit and it did thicken up nicely but I know what you mean, it is very sticky now! Seems to be a very fine line making this stuff to get it just right :rolleyes: DO you know how long I should wait before eating?

Well guys I doubt I am going to come in on budget this month...but to be expected really, as I have realised that I have set myself a bit of an unrealistic budget. Yes, there are a few areas I need to look at which can be cut back, but I am going to increase my budget as of next month and sort of start form the beginning again:)
Spend so far £279.60:o
Oh well...I will try damage limitation this month and will start afresh in September, with a revised 'realistic' budget:D

I think you should leave it for a while but in honest truth ours is always nearly gone a few weeks after making it !!! :rolleyes:
Would love to know the recipe for Mango Chutney :j
I have been on the Making Preserves Thread and found my copy of Mrs Beatons Jam book so guess what I will be doing today !! We are also hoping to go Blackberry picking again.

I did the same when I first started the GC. I used to set a budget too low for me at that point and then got really disheartened when I couldn't stick to it. After months of this and then dropping off the challenge I restarted with a considerably higher budget which I came in under budget for the first time last month. I then looked at what I had in and reduced it by £50 for this month. I'll try this again next month depending what the end of month total is.
It's simple for me - I just need to stay out of the shops - funny that! If I go in for a wander then I get seduced by the bargains etc Need to get back to using a list for all of the week not just the weekend
