Burgon & Ball jars

ONE SOLUTION, when you’re suffering from the age-old dilemma of what to do with excess produce, is to make your own pickles, chutneys and jams – something that increasing numbers of people are choosing to do as they are not only cost-effective but taste delicious. If you want to give your home-made efforts extra wow factor a new range of preserving jars from Burgon & Ball will do the trick. Each of the four clear jars is emblazoned with a Wallace & Grommit-esque label – choose from cracking chutney, perfectly pickled, marvellous marmalade and delicious jam. All have screw-top lids.

*Jam, marmalade and chutney jars, £2.25 each; pickle jar, £2.95, from www. burgonandball.com
