  • 1.5 kg Redcurrents (or any weight of redcurrents you have)
  • 1kg Preserving sugar
  • 2 tbsp Cassis


  1. Rinse the redcurrants and add them to a large pan.

  2. Cover the pan with enough water to cover the bottom. Simmer the fruit until it is cooked and softened

  3. Strain the fruit with a fine sift, extracting as much juice and flesh as you can .. discard the seeds and stalks.

  4. Now weigh the strained puréed fruit and add it back to the pan along with the same weight of sugar. We had 1kg at this stage thus added 1kg of sugar.

  5. Bring to a rolling boil and maintain the boil for 5 mintues

  6. add the cassis (adjust amount as necessary depending on the amount of fruit)

  7. To test if the jam is done use the cold plate test. place a drop of jam on to a cold plate from the freezer. If you can nudge the jam and it holds its shape its done, if not put back on the heat for a few more minutes.

  8. Remove the scum from the pan and pour into sterilised jars . Keeps for up to a year.
