Blackberry and Damson Plum Conserve

Blackberry is finally in season in the UK. A bit late, but at least we have some to pick. With the help of my two friends we managed to pick quiet a substantial amount of it. I’ve also managed to get hold of some Damson plum, so I’ve arrange a marriage with the berries.

I didn’t want to use too much sugar (is bad for me), so I’ve added some extra pectin to make sure the jam will set properly. Also instead of caster sugar, I’ve used jam sugar with added pectin.

Strawberry Conserve

As I promised, I continue to post what I’ve made out of my successful PYO trip harvest. This is a relatively easy to make strawberry conserve. If you don’t like it sweet you can always use pectin instead of jam sugar.

Lemon Curd

Long due this recipe. I’ve made this for my sable biscuit back in January. Although it contains raw eggs, it’s last in the fridge for weeks.
