About this recipe:Damsons are in season during the months of August and September and can be eaten off the tree when they are fully ripe and a sweet variety. Damsons are usually found growing wild throughout the countryside in places like hedgerows, country lanes, woodland and riverbanks. Perhaps you are lucky enough to have a tree in your own garden or orchard, if so, lucky you! Damsons are fantastic in jams and preserves, as well as in sauces to accompany sweet and savoury dishes like game. In addition to damson jam, you can also make damson syrups and cordials.
