  • 600 g Granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp Lemon juice
  • 300 mls Water

Instructions

  • Place raspberries, blackcurrants, lemon juice and water into a preserving pan (or one of that size).
  • Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes stirring occassionally.
  • Turn the heat down low and stir in the sugar until completely dissolved.
  • Bring to the boil (stirring to prevent sticking) and time for 7 minutes.
  • Take off the heat and pour a few drops onto a chilled saucer.
  • Push you finger through and if it forms a crinkle it's ready.
  • If not, re-boil for a couple of minutes and repeat until ready.
  • Pour into hot sterilised jars.

Notes

Before you start: Sterilise  jars by washing in hot soapy water (or take straight from dishwasher), fill with boiling water, empty and then place in oven for 20 minutes at 140°C where you leave them until the jam is ready. Washed lids should be sterilised with boiling water and then left to drain (if they don’t dry in time I pop them in the oven once the jars are ready and just run the fan to dry them off for a few minutes).
