Black currant jam recipe
To cook a blackcurrant jam recipe, sort out the berries and rinse under running water. Since the black currant will be frayed and only juice is used, the currant does not need to cut off the inflorescence, which greatly simplifies the recipe.
Pour the washed black currant with water and put on medium heat. You need to cook the currants for 5 minutes – this is enough for the currants to soften and burst.
Next, grind the black currants through a sieve. The cake is no longer needed, you can then make compote from it or add it to tea.
Cooking black currant jam takes about 30 minutes over low heat after boiling. It is best to check the density by dropping a drop of jam on a plate and letting it cool. If the jam does not drain after turning the plate, then the black currant jam is ready. Transfer the jam to sterilized jars and seal.
