Nils' Ye Olde Bread Blogge & my sticky jam pot

Wow!  I've been published in Germany.

Nils is a terrific bread maker, who invents and works that sourdough process, for the benefit of people like me, who get to try his recipes.

He's brought out an e-book of his bread recipes.  Aren't we the lucky ones, just one click, and all his hard work is downloaded onto our computers.

Well I woke up this morning, with blurred vision and coffee deprivation, to find my pot of damson jam featuring on Nils excellent bread blog  ye olde bread blogge

Thank goodness it survived the dreaded snatch and grab, dropsy antics of the Royal Mail.  I was a little worried at it's chances.

Is it my imagination, or is our post getting quicker.  This package took 5 or 6 days.
And my last to the States took just 4 days.
In my time in Spain, the post used to take weeks, or a couple of months even.

Just had grilled bread with the damsnon jam! Thanks again.

Love the idea of all this home produce being shipped around the world. I'm sure it was much appreciated.

Your goodies are are becoming world famous I see Grillers - it does look a mighty fine jam - and I'm not a lover, but that jar would tempt me - it looks made for a scone!

Lucky it wasn't the States you were sending it to, it would have been opened & blown up by the bomb disposal - Grilly's best damson everywhere!

To be on the safe side - I think you should hand deliver it next time.....:-)!

Cracking idea, Mrs Lushly.
I could do with a shopping trip to stock up on Weissbier und frankfurters!
