About this recipe: This blackcurrant jam is a family favourite and is very easy to make, and eat! We love blackcurrant jam in so many things that we have become quite creative! This jam is quite delicious with duck and most game dishes, and of course in a variety of sweet dishes like blackcurrant tarts and on ice cream; the opportunities to enjoy are endless! Blackcurrants are usually in season from June through August so look out for these berries in farm shops and supermarkets around this time.

My neighbour has a blackcurrant bush, she is away on holiday, she said help yourself, thought what can i do with these, at first thought what alot of water and sugar, and i added the sugar before i should have, but let it simmer away without a lid for maybe 2 hours 15 minutes, put it in my sterile jars, only yielded 6 jars, but they were larger than normal jam jars, fantastic, not over sweet, like some, i am so proud of myself, first time ever making it, roll in next year, so i can make it again, thank you for this great recipe! - 04 Aug 2015
