  • 600 g Blackberries washed & drained
  • 500 g Bramley apples peeled, cored and cut into berry sized chunks
  • 1.1 kg Granulated sugar
  • 300 ml Water
  • 10 g Butter


  1. Put the water and apple chunks in a preserving pan (or similar) and simmer gently until soft (about 5 mins).

  2. Add the blackberries, bring to the boil and simmer until soft (about 15 – 20 mins).
  3. Add the sugar off the heat stirring to dissolve the crystals.
  4. Heat the pan gently to ensure all the sugar dissolves, then boil rapidly for 10 mins stirring regularly.
  5. Take off the heat and test a large drop of jam on a chilled saucer and if it crinkles after a couple of mins it’s ready.
  6. If not boil for another 2 mins and repeat test until ready.
  7. Remove excess scum with a slotted spoon and then stir in the butter to remove the rest.
  8. Ladle into sterilised jars. Makes 1.8 kg.

Recipe Notes

Before you start jam making just wash your jars and lids in hot soapy water, fill with boiling water, empty and then pop in the oven for 20 mins at 120°C and leave in there until your jam is ready.
