    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.

    An easy jam for first-timers. Once you taste home-made you'll never buy store-bought again! The colour depends on the variety of the plums you use - the above picture used English Victoria plums, yellow/light skins. Red plums produce red jam, dark plums produce a darker jam. The taste is the same.

    This tastes a hundred times better than anything you could buy in the shops. Amazingly it tastes pretty good as soon as it's cooled, but ideally it should be left for at least a month to allow the flavours to develop. We've opened jars after 6 months and they are even better! Ginger makes this quite fiery, you might want to adjust the quantity to suit your own taste. Vegetables can be varied according to personal preference; red peppers and sweetcorn are suggestions.
