Bramble and Apple Jam

Wild blackberries, or brambles, have always been in plentiful supply in British hedgerows, and have been gathered and used in many different ways for centuries. Blackberries are also being more widely cultivated commercially and are often available on pick-your-own fruit farms, as well as being in the shops from the end of July until September.

ingredients

1.8 kg (4 lb) blackberries
700 g (1 1/2 lb) peeled, cored and sliced cooking apples

method

1. Put the blackberries in a large saucepan with 150 ml (1/4 pint) water and simmer gently until soft.

2. Put the apples in a separate preserving pan with 150 ml (1/4 pint) water and simmer gently until soft. Pulp with a wooden spoon or potato masher.

3. Add the blackberries and sugar to the apple pulp, stirring until the sugar has dissolved, then add a knob of butter.
