  • 300 g blackberries
  • 300 g bramley apples peeled, cored and cut into blackberry-sized pieces
  • 1 splash water
  • 600 g granulated sugar
  1. Peel and core the apples, and add to the blackberries in a good-sized saucepan along with a splash of water. Put on a lid and cook over a low heat until the apple has cooked down.
  2. Mash apple and blackberries to make sure there aren't any lumps.

  3. Place jam jars and lids in a roasting dish and into the oven set to 140°C/Gas mark 1.

  4. Add the sugar, and stir in until dissolved.

  5. Heat the jam quickly until it reaches a setting point. Use one of our setting point tests.

  6. When a set has been reached, allow to cool for a few moments and then spoon into the jam jars, using a jam funnel. Seal the lids - take care, as the jam and jars will be extremely hot.

  7. Allow to cool and listen for the lids to pop. Store in a cool place, but start enjoying straight away!
