Forest fruits jam

    1 hour 20 min

    This is the jam we love to make. It is sweet and tangy and it tastes like summer. You can play around with the ratios of fruits, ie use more raspberries than blackberries, etc. Enjoy!

    1. Combine fruit with sugar and lemon juice in a copper jam pan or a large pot. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly.
    2. Cook for 40 more minutes and skim off the foam with a slotted spoon.
    3. Pour a teaspoon of jam onto a cold plate: the jam is done when it wrinkles when pushed with your finger.
    4. Fill jars (previously boiled in hot water), wipe the edges. Close the jars tightly and turn the jars upside down for 30 minutes.

    I make jam regularly for my business with half of the profits going to charity and this jam is a popular seller alongside my plum jam. The consistency of this jam is just right and tastes so good.  -  14 Mar 2017


    My first ever attempt at making jam. Making for Xmas hampers so needed something straight forward. This recipe made 4 150ml jars. Unlike the review before my jam was really lovely and thick (and I didn't use gelatine so the only thing I can suggest is use a pan that can get very hot, I used a Jamaican Dutch pot). Very tasty and easy recipe. Thanks!  -  02 Dec 2013
