Simple blackcurrant jam

By Dan Lepard

Feast on one of our recipes for these little berries with the big, earthy flavour - delicious in summer puddings or try our easy blackcurrant jam recipe.


Blackcurrants need to be cooked with a little sugar and a splash of water for their full charm to emerge. They bring an essential base note to summer puddings or lightly cooked compôte. Blackcurrant jam is another favourite. In tarts and turnovers a filling of blackcurrants, sugar and chopped fresh mint is a revelation.
