Many years ago I ate some of the most delicious jam I've ever tasted. it was red currant jam and unfortunately I've never been able to find the same brand again.

Then the other day I was given some rather gorgeous, freshly picked  red, black and white berries and asked if I'd make some jam? They were currants.

Now I know this isn't the weather to be making jam, but hey, the fruit was calling

So I said yes.

Easy process, throw everything in the pot with equal amount of sugar and let it boil till it reaches its setting point. When does that happen? I'm not sure, I just boiled it till I thought it would be OK.

It looked and smelled pretty good, as jam goes. Fruity and sugary.

I'll keep the small jar and give the rest to the person who picked the fruit...

Limoncello... again

Did you make it?

How did it go?

This is how mine turned out...

Empty. Well almost

I gave the three small bottles away as gifts and kept what was left, which was almost 700ml

No, I didn't drink it all. I shared.

It was lovely!
