This is one of my best selling jams!
This batch is made from some fruit I froze in the summer. Frozen fruit will work just as well as fresh. If you do buy discounted fruit make sure you freeze it straight away.
I used 4 punnets, a total of 600g
Then add a kilo of jam sugar (or caster sugar if you can’t find jam sugar)
I like to add a little bit of vanilla to balance the sharpness of the berries. Then boil for a further 5 minutes
I tend to keep the jam on the heat for a little longer and check the consistency of the jam using a saucer that I’ve kept in the freezer.
I buy my jars from wilkinson or Hobby Craft in packs of 12
The end result is sweet and sharp with a hint of booze. It’s fantastic on scones and crusty bread!
In previous batches I’ve added edible glitter which looks amazing and very festive!
