This picture is another from the Oakwood Farmers Market and is from a stall there selling preserves. The photo shows jars of Greengage Jam, Quince Jelly and Champagne Rhubarb from the local people at Perfectly Preserved who make chutney, jam, ketchup and relish.
I have always liked those varieties of fruit now rather less common than they once were, like greengages and rhubarb and even quince. Whilst I had heard of quince I was not even sure what it looked like, so looked it up, quince belongs to same family of fruit as apples and pears and looks a bit like a pear.
The Oakwood farmers market is held on the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Oakwood Clock in Oakwood, North Leeds.

Like the thought of Quince Jelly. Do they sell a runcible spoon with which to eat it?

Very classy marketing- I’d part with my money for the Champagne rhubarb jam – sound delish!
