Ingredients

Siúcra Sure-Set Jam Sugar
Blackcurrants
Water

 

Instructions

Wash and drain the fruit - there is no need to remove the stalks; place in a large saucepan with the water - just enough to barely cover the fruit.

Bring to the boil and simmer until the fruit breaks down. Strain through a scalded jelly-bag or at least four layers of muslin and allow to drip, without squeezing, until no more juice comes through.

N.B. Do not leave the juice for longer than 1 day before finishing the jelly.

Measure the juice and allow 1 kg (2 1/4 lb approximately) Sure-Set to each 750 ml (1 1/3 pints approximately) for best results use 1 kg and 750 ml at a time.

Heat the juice, add the Sure-Set and stir until dissolved, then bring to the boil and boil vigorously for 1 minute. (See 'Adding Sure-Set' for details on boiling and timing).

Pot and cover in the usual way; label and date. (See 'Potting and covering' for details).
