Mulberry Jam

If you are fortunate to have mulberries, making this sweet jam captures their flavour for the rest of the year. The deep red berries have the most flavour but you need less red berries for the jam as they contain more pectin.

Ingredients

  • 1kg Mulberries
  • 1 Lemon
  • 750g Sugar

Method

  1. Rinse the mulberries carefully and gently so that no juice is lost.
  2. Put into a pan and simmer until soft.
  3. Add the grated lemon rind and lemon juice and stir in the sugar over low heat until dissolved.
  4. Boil hard to setting point, pour into hot jars and cover.
