Blackberry Jam

Blackberry Jam LARGE
Blackberries are autumn fruiting, so you might find plenty if you go foraging in the hedgegrows-just make sure you are positive you have the correct berry and wash them carefully. Homemade blackberry jam is the perfect addition to toast or scones - and you could even make your own now to give away as Christmas gifts. 

Ingredients

  • 1.75kg blackberries
  • 2kg caster sugar
  • 6 tsp powdered pectin
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter

*Makes 80 servings - roughly 5 full jars 

How to make: 

  • Place the blackberries into a large, heavy saucepan and crush them with a potato masher.
  • Add the sugar and pectin and heat very slowly, stirring all the time until every grain of sugar has dissolved.
  • Add the butter, increase the heat, and bring to a full rolling boil.
  • Boil for exactly 4 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and cool for 1 minute.
  • Place in jam jars and cover immediately.

Remember...


Sterilise jars with boiling water before you fill them with jam.

And don't forget to freeze any leftover blackberries as the season ends - you could always enjoy these right out of the freezer with a drizzle of warm chocolate sauce.
