I picked 4kg of blackberries the other day from the Walthamstow marshes in London (so much more than back in the country!) and made two batches of jam with 2kg (with and without apples, and froze the rest) this was the best. It has a bit of a Christmasy taste because of the cinnamon and nutmeg. Here's my recipe - finite measurements are for squares :-)
This a chunky blackberry jam that requires no pectin. A foolproof jam recipe that can also be frozen in the freezer if you aren't processing it in sterilised jars.
Easiest jam recipe ever. Try it with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries or blackberries and see for yourself.
Foraging time is on us again and seeing as these two berries always seem to live in close proximity to each other, why not combine them in a jam. It's difficult to give precise measurements and weights for this jam, it depends how juicy the berries are that you use. The important thing is that you get the sugar to juice ratio correct as detailed below. The amount of sugar you need will depend on how much juice the berries give out
Gather your friends and family and venture out into the countryside to search the hedgerows for blackberries. Blackberries are quite hardy and have a long harvest season from June through November, reaching their peak in August. Archaeologists believe that blackberries have been eaten in Britain since prehistoric times and were probably gathered between July and August and then preserved, allowing them to be eaten through the colder months. Join in this ancient wild food tradition and gather your blackberries while the sun shines.
Jam making needn't be a mystery - my blackberry jam recipe is truly foolproof!
There's nothing more wonderful in life than ambling along quiet hedgerows in the New Forest picking fresh blackberries while the sun shines and the birds sing. This recipe captures some of the best wild bounty that southern England has to offer. The fantastic flavour of this jam on a cold winter morning, months after being made, will warm your heart and transport you back to the day it was made. Get out and look for blackberries from May through November and overlap the blackberry picking with gathering some apple windfalls for the freshest ingredients for your wild jam.
OK so I've been looking for a recipe for a simple jam, blackberry glut going on here, well, popped out Sunday afternoon for 2 hours came back with 4kg of juicy ripe loveliness! To say I've researched would be an understatement (trawled all the foodie sites including here and all my recipe books, to little avail). Found many lovely sounding recipes so decided to take the plunge, picked up pears on sale and rhubarb so forgot the cooking apples, but hey ho. Necessity is the father of invention or something along those lines!
A delicious blackberry jam for blackberry season! I love this recipe as one doesn't have to bother processing the jars in a hot water bath.
A delicious way to take advantage to the bumper crop of wild blackberries this year. Blackberries on their own can be a little flat when made into jam. Adding some elderflower cordial gives it a lovely zing. I made mine using blackberries from my garden and elderflower cordial I had made earlier this summer.
