Seedless blackberry and apple jam: the recipe


. . . with thanks to any number of different chefs whose recipes I have cannibalised. If anyone notices any silly mistakes, please let me know.

Seedless blackberry and apple jam
This is seedless but it’s not a true jelly as it’s cloudy. I resent the waste of good fruit to make a true jelly.

Equipment:
A sieve, mouli or other method of sieving the pips, core and skin from the stewed fruit.
A large pan
Ladle, wooden spoon, a jam funnel, if possible.
Jam jars, wax discs, either cellophane circles (and elastic bands) or lids.
Labels

Ingredients and method
For every kilo of blackberries, you need about 350g of apples. They can be windfalls (cut out any bad bits before weighing) or well flavoured eaters. Chop the apples into small pieces, core, skin and all, just no bad bits

Place the fruit in a large pan with enough water to prevent sticking (you can always add more if necessary later). Simmer the fruit until it’s all soft. I like to give it all a good mashing with my potato masher from time to time to help it along.

When it’s all soft and mushy, push the fruit through a sieve or a mouli so that all the pips and skin remain behind. Discard these.

Weigh the fruit pulp. Add the sugar, gram for gram – i.e. 500g fruit pulp will need 500g sugar. Place the sugar and the fruit pulp in a large pan and stir together well. I like to leave it overnight, covered. It’s not essential but it helps the sugar to dissolve into the fruit and I think it reduces the amount of scum (no idea why).

When you’re ready, get the jam jars together, clean them thoroughly and place them in the oven at about 130 C to get good and hot.

Heat the fruit and sugar, slowly at first and then, when all the sugar has dissolved, bring it to a rolling boil and let it boil for about 10 minutes or until it reaches setting point.
Scrape any scum from the surface and allow to stand for a few minutes.
Ladle the hot jam into the jars, using a jam funnel, if possible (because it’s less messy), lay the wax discs over the top and then seal with either cellophane and an elastic band or a screw lid.
Allow to cool, label and store in a cool, dark place.
