LIlly Pilly Update

Well, we've done it. I had a ladder and the family in the back yard this morning raiding the Lilly Pilly Tree. We ended up with a decent haul. Kids will do just about anything if it involves climbing a ladder.

Following the advise of Mariana I thought I would give Lilly Pilly Jelly a go.  I have only just cleaned and boiled them, so they are now draining through some suspended muslin. The drained juice doesn't look anywhere near as vibrant as Mariana's but the smell is quite strong. It will be interesting to see how the second part of the cooking process goes tomorrow.

Looking at the tree, it is great to know that there is quite a lot of fruit still to come.

Thanks so much to everyone for all of their fabulous advice following my recent post.

Take care
