This is not for everyone but I enjoy going Scrumping with my daughter and have made jam and preserved fruit in syrup for Christmas. The jars were given to me by work colleagues and the other ingredients that I have paid for is cheap over ripe like the pinapples and pectin sugar
Yesterday I made a huge batch of vegan pineapple tarts which we will take to the BBq tonight and of course there are plenty for us . Im not a vegan but some of the guests are, the previous week we scrumped and picked green walnuts and stewed that with cinnamon stick , star anise.and dark rum. This will.keep for Christmas and is lovely with vanilla cream.
Tomorrow morning I will make blackberry pancakes as I picked blackberries on way home . It’s all good fun baking and it costs hardly anything goes if you can get some of the produce free
Thanks for the replies, I am going to try some of the usual free activities as I am a Lone Parent so things do get tight sometimes.

I work from home so my schedule is quite flexible, I can work around her but I highly doubt she will be interested in camping but thank you for the suggestion.
