I love jam, but so many shop-bought jams have SO MUCH SUGAR and often a whole load of other ingredients that personally… I don’t think jam needs…
As I like to keep it simple, less ingredients the better.
And, what’s even better, blackberries are abundant at the moment, which you can forage FOR FREE!!
Blackberry Jam Fibre Points 2
Use a ratio of 5:1 (berries to sugar) eg 500g berries, 100g sugar
Juice of a lemon (or lime)
You can either do this stovetop or in the slow cooker.
On the stovetop: Mix everything in your pot over medium heat. The juice will release and once the sugar has dissolved, allow it to come to a boil, then reduce it to a simmer for 30 mins. Switch off the heat and leave to cool before transferring into sterilised jars for storage in the fridge.
In Slow cooker: Mix everything in the pot, put of high for 3-4 hours string occasionally. Switch it off, leave to cool before transferring into sterilised jars.
It tastes great on sourdough bread!
Let me know if you make it and what you think.
