  • 1.3 kg blackberries
  • juice 2 lemons
  • 650 gram(s) crab or Bramley apples, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
  • sugar (see step 4 for amount)
  • Makes about 1.8kg

Method

  1. Pick over the blackberries to make sure there are no hedgerow creatures lurking, rinse and then put in a large pan with the juice of 1 lemon and 100ml water. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes until they are soft and juicy.
  2. Put the apples in a separate pan with the remaining lemon juice and 300ml water. Cover and simmer until the mixture is soft and pulpy.
  3. Blitz the blackberries briefly in a blender or food processor, then push through a sieve to remove the pips. Skip this stage if you don't mind pips in your jam.
  4. Weigh the blackberry purée and apple pulp and put into a preserving pan with the same weight of sugar. Slowly dissolve the sugar over a low heat, then bring to a rapid boil for 10-20 minutes until setting point is reached - stir from time to time to make sure the fruit isn't catching on the bottom of the pan and adjust the heat if it's boiling too vigorously.
  5. Once setting point is reached, skim off the scum. By the way, don't throw this away - it's edible, a cook's perk and is delicious on toast! Pot the mixture while still hot into hot sterilised jars or when completely cold into cold jars - never pot while just warm as this could make your jam go mouldy. Seal, then label when completely cold.
