Red Currant Jam

July 27, 2010

My mom and I were lucky enough to happen upon both RED and Black Currants at our local Veggie Store.  So we got to work figuring out what to make…JAM…of course! 

Stemming all 16 pints of RED currants took a bit of time but it is a relatively easy task and we made short order of it.

Using a great olde English recipe we made our jam.

I’ll post the recipe later…here is a picture of it cooking down.


With 16 pints of currants stemmed we were able to make Apricot Red Currant Jam, plain Red Currant Jam and some Jelly.

Put Up Total:

  • 3 x 250mL Wide Mouth Jars (Apricot Red Currant Jam)
  • 2 x 250mL Wide Mouth Jars (Red Currant Jam)
  • 3 x 236mL Jars (Red Currant Jam)
  • 1 x 250mL Regular  Mouth Jars (Red Currant Jelly)
  • 1 x 236mL Jar (Red Currant Jelly)
