BrambleRamble Jam

Boil and simmer your blackberries/brambles until good and soft.

Bring the strained mixture to a boil and then simmer.

Lightly boil until the mixture sets. You could do the candy thermometer thing, but I don’t like to be so accurate. So I use the cold saucer technique. Place a few saucers in the fridge. When the mixture has boiled for about 20-30 minutes, place a drop on one of the saucers from the fridge. It’s finished when it wrinkles when you nudge it with your finger. Repeat the process until it sets.

Wash the jars, preferably in the dishwasher. Then ‘bake’ in the oven (GM4/350F) for about 10 minutes.

Let it cool for for about 3-5 minutes and then pour into sanitized jars. It’s best to sanitise just before you need them because it’s safer to pour a hot mixture into a hot/warm jar.
