This is one of those recipes that a friend gave us years ago. She thinks it was an Aunt Daisy recipe. It works, but time it carefully. Jam making is all about getting the jam mix up to 105C, which is the setting temperature. so make sure it comes to a good boil before timing. Use this jam to make these incredibly easy tarts.
- Put the berries and 170g of the sugar into a large saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
- Once boiling and the sugar is dissolved, boil over moderate heat for 5 minutes (time it).
- Add the remaining sugar, stir to dissolve, bring to the boil, boil another 5 minutes then remove from the heat and pour into sterilised jars and seal.
