in my large pan is the only remains of my lucky find today.
1 kg blackcurrants
a good gluck of sloe gin
1 kg of jam sugar (or whatever you use to make it set)
I stumbled across a plenty of reduced blackcurrants in one of my local shops. Jammy, really. Usually, three blackcurrants tend to cost an arm and a leg here, if you can find them at all, and my mum would turn her eye to heavens knowing that I would spend money on buying fruit to make jam with - that's what the garden is for. Never mind.
This is what's left - except for the six jam jars full of delight, of course.
Jam: the darker the better, I think.
