I’m really enjoying all this blogging, many thanks to Hannah from ‘Ditto’ who said it must be part of our marketing strategy, she added that it was necessary to show the ‘human’ side of the company not just selling our tours & walks.
Amanda and I took this on board and hopefully that is what we are showing you and resisting the temptation to do a ‘Dear Diary full confessional’ ( you’re too young for that).
So pleased was I with myself and the way I have learned WordPress, that I looked at the site statistics about what people have viewed most. Great delight and jubilation 177 people have viewed our home page in less than a month of blogging! Now some of you must be for real, as we don’t have large extended families, heartfelt thanks to you all, Dear Reader!
I pried further and found these statistics can be drilled down to the most popular search & blog page , how interesting- was it to be Brighton, Canterbury,London or which other lovely place we have mentioned that pulled you in??
No, it was the search for overcoming runny Dandelion Jam that took the biscuit! I’m a little crestfallen to say the least! Just goes to show that Hannah was completely correct, the human side of business is just so important.
So, in the age old concept of Demand & Supply, for those of you who don’t like the coulis solution to runny Dandelion Jam, here is an alternative using Arrowroot. Looks like cornflour and usually found next to it on the supermarket shelf, does the same thing but much faster and without taste.
You might need to do this in stages as it will depend on how much jam you have:
Mix 1 teaspoon of powdered arrowroot with 2 tablespoons of water to form a paste, add a tablespoon of runny dandelion jam to the paste and mix, this will stop the arrowroot forming lumps when introduced to the bulk of the jam. When you have added enough jam to make a runny arrowroot mixture, pour it all into the jam pan with the rest of the jam and heat gently to boiling point. The jam will go cloudy to start with, thicken and clear. You may need to repeat process if it has not reached the desired consistency. Once thickened, pour into your newly cleaned jam pots and leave to cool. Simples!
