Yesterday was our very first market at Ritherdon Road street party in Balham. It was an amazing day, which definitely made up for the post midnight finish the night before making up the last jam batches and the madness at 9am screaming at my printer to print (top tip- don't rely on wireless printer connections!) Thank you so much to everybody who came to the stall to taste, feedback and also buy the products!
The top selling product was the jalapeño jelly- and this was the product I was up until midnight making the night before. I somewhat naively thought jam making was going to be easy when I started this but it certainly isn't! Being somewhat of a perfectionist doesn't help! This is now well over the 10th version of jalapeño jelly I've tried, and from the feedback yesterday all the recipe trialling was worth it. Unfortunately I sold out by 2pm due to the small amount of stock I had managed to produce- I do however I have plenty of very runny jalapeño not-jelly at home if anyone wants some- jalapeño cordial maybe?!
We'll be back next at the Kings Cross Real Food Market from 1st June so look forward to seeing many of you there- and there will be plenty more jalapeño jelly available this time!
Here are some photos from yesterday
