Last week I went berry picking with a good friend. Berry picking is one of my favourite summertime activities, it's fun, it's outdoors and the best part is you end up with lots of really cheap berries for jam. I have included the strawberry jam that I've made before here. This time I decided to go for raspberries and blackberries but, like the strawberry jam, I prefer not to use loads of sugar. So here's the recipe I used and what you get is something that goes as well on toast as it does with yoghurt or heated over ice-cream.
Each jam was brought to the boil and then boiled for 5-8 minutes while the top was skimmed. During the boiling process I sterilized two jars and then once the jam had cooled slightly poured them into the jar and then cooled them on the counter before placing in the fridge over-night.
I have ;)
