After a good rinse and bit of de-stalking I put all the ingredients in the pan and brought it to the boil, then let it bubble gently for about 30 minutes.
I don't have a thermometer so I used the tried and tested cold saucer and finger method. It took 3 goes before it stayed separated.Nor do I have a funnel so I had to ladel it into the jars which got a bit messy, but nothing that a good wipe over with a clean damp cloth didn't solve.
No fancy jars either I'm afraid. I just sterilised what I had in the cupboard. The 1kg of blackcurrants gave me this much jam. I'll give the small jar to Mum.We've booked a holiday! We're going back to Cofton in Devon. We've been twice before, once in our own caravan and once in a cottage. They didn't have any cottages available so this time we are going in one of their holiday homes a.k.a. an extra large caravan that has decking around it that you can sit out on!
We are going the Saturday after Tom's funeral. Normally we'd be inclined to try somewhere different but Cofton is lovely and this year I feel we need to know where we are going and what we are getting, just so that we can sit back, relax and enjoy ourselves.
