CWA turns Maitland Gaol's mulberries into Gaol Jam

From the Maitland Mercury report:
If you want something very Maitland to have with your scones or morning toast, East Maitland CWA has you ­covered.
The ladies have taken about 30kg of fruit from a mulberry tree that has stood in the middle of the Maitland Gaol grounds for the past 50 years and created their own brand of jam.
About 134 jars of Gaol Jam have been produced as part of the first batch and the CWA ladies have sold about 30 so far.
“Gaol Jam makes use of this significant tree’s produce again, and we hope it is also a fun and very tasty way to engage the community in part of the facility’s history.”
