  • 500 g blackcurrants
  • 400 g granulated sugar


  • Remove the stalks from the blackcurrants and give them a rinse then pop them into a high-sided pan with the sugar.
    Set aside for a few hours or overnight to let the sugar pull the juices from the blackcurrants and dissolve
  • Boil the jam to setting point at 105C and remove any scum that is on the top
  • Ladle into sterilised jars and pop on the lids



I've roughly worked out the servings here as a tablespoon of blackcurrant jam. I got 3 x 250ml jars of jam from this recipe.
Your blackcurrant jam will keep for up to a year in a cool cupboard there is no need to water bath can it.
Use your jam on toast and scones, as a cake filling, thinned as a desert topping or glaze for roasting duck or on a cheeseboard too.
