With budgeting high on the agenda, visitors to the BBC Good Food Show Summer can learn from a number of producers on how to make their own.
There will be a kit to ‘make your own jam’ from ‘Jam on the hill’ and a yoghurt making kit from ‘Easiyo’.

The show will help explain why buying British is also a way to save money and the environment while supporting local farmers.

A spokesperson from the event said:
