Last week I read about microwave jam making on Lavender Attic's blog and I was quite intrigued as it sounded foolproof. Having only made jam once before, this summer, I thought it was worth a go and would make some nice festive pressies if it worked.
Here it is halfway through the microwaving and beginning to look and smell like jam!
All done and looking good so in the jars and fingers crossed it sets!
Ta dah! it set beautifully. I want to thank Sally at Lavender Attic for introducing me to this fantastic, simple way to successfully make jam. I'm converted! Here is the link to Sally's post with the recipe and details
I used a mixed pack of frozen fruit from the supermarket containing raspberries, blackberries, redcurrants & blackcurrants and I took inspiration from a more recent post of Sally's to add Port to make it festive. It has an intense colour and delicious flavour.
