Make use of those hedgerow blackberries that look so neglected and transform them into this luscious preserve.


  1. Pile the blackberries and apples into a large pan with the water. Simmer gently for about 15 minutes until the fruit is tender and the contents of the pan reduced.

    • 500g Apple(s) (cooking, Cored and chopped)
    • 600g Blackberries
    • 100ml Water (warm)
  2. Add the golden granulated sugar, bring to the boil, stirring, and then boil rapidly for about 10 minutes.

    • 1.2kg Unrefined Golden Granulated Sugar (we like Billingtons)
  3. Pour in the apple pectin, cook for a few more minutes.

    • 100ml Apple pectin
  4. Turn off the heat. Put a teaspoonful of jam onto a cold saucer and leave it for 1 minute. Drag your finger lightly over the surface of the jam on the plate, if a skin has formed and wrinkles, that means it has reached setting point. If the skin doesn’t wrinkle, continue boiling for a couple more minutes, turn off the heat and try again. Cool for 1 hour

  5. Put clean jars upturned onto a baking sheet and heat on the lowest oven setting for 15 minutes to sterilize the jars. Pour in jam, cover, seal and label.
