A Weekend of Jolly Jars

Leave a comment

Well, what more can I say – I am the LUCKIEST lady in the world. I had a massive amount of Jolly Jars to make for the Jess’s Messes Festive Feasts this year, the prospect was not a particularly ‘Jolly’ one, but then, along came my lovely Mum and Dad. They helped out every step of the way and were the most wonderful Sous Chefs and made the Jess’s Messes Hamper making experience truly Jolly – I’m so grateful and wanted to publicly thank them, so…..


So, this is just a little post to show you exactly what goes into your Jolly Jars. Everything is made from scratch and with the freshest ingredients. I think the best way to describe this is to show in images. So here they are:
