Alberton, the historic mansion in Mt Albert cared for by Heritage New Zealand, will feature in upcoming Auckland Heritage Festival events.
Both events will feature fresh, home-made jam – in differing measures.

Here, Lynda will share her experiences making over 500 jars of jam and jelly in 52 weeks using everything from spring strawberries to Autumn quince,” says the Manager of Alberton, Rendell McIntosh.
