Blackcurrant jam is great spread on toast or with scones and cream, but also makes a lovely accompaniment to cheese. It can also be added to youghurt or poured onto ice-cream for a lovely fruity hit.
This year we won a Great Taste Award for our blackcurrant jam. The judges said:
A beautifully coloured jam with an attractive gloss…. Lovely jewel-like colour and homemade appearance. The aroma is delightful, and conveys clear blackcurrant notes. There are good sized fruit pieces, and plenty of them. The flavour of this jam is great: a brilliant balance of tartness and sweetness. The skins of the currants are tender. Just right. Good even consistency without too much wateriness – the shape of the fruit has held up well. An excellent, pure blackcurrant taste… A simple and versatile jam… Pleasingly tart and not too sweet.
