Some of you might remember my first attempt at making Jam. ‘Smoky Mountain Strawberry Jam’ was what my lovely husband jokingly called the thick sludgy burnt outcome. Since then I’ve been some what reluctant to try again, but we’ve been picking blackberries a plenty and we have more plums than we could ever eat (some from our trees, some from friends) so the Baldy Boy was keen to have another go.
So with two recipes and entirely too many cooks in the kitchen (do you know it takes five people to stir a pot of jam?), yesterday we tried again.
Plum and Blackberry Jam Success!
Well success moderated by the fact that it is still a tad runnier than we had anticipated. I think we erred on the side of under cooking in fear of ruining the lot yet again, but it tastes good and that’s all that counts right?
