This one is for Anita:

My wife makes a mean chilli jam,

To take to the market in Ham,*

She also makes pickle,

My tastebuds to tickle.

I confess I’m a fan, yes I am!

This limerick is for Branston:

I do love a nice jar of Brantston,
It’s so moorish, I can’t keep my pants on!
I eat every bit,
So my zip goes for six,
And I need hoisting in with a stancheon.
