I've just picked 5lbs of blackcurrants from my garden and made some jam. It's an annual ritual along with picking and freezing my broad beans and peas. Then there will be a lull before I tackle the sweetcorn. Busy busy!

Fig preserves - by far. My 85 year old aunt makes us some every year and they are so good on toast or biscuits. My sister puts sour cream with hers. I take mine without.

CharlieD, I learned the difference just recently between jelly, jam, and preserves.
  • Jelly is made with fruit juice and therefore is usually clear and has no fruit bits.
  • Jam is made from crushed fruit or fruit pulp, usually contains fruit bits, and is usually less clear, but it is usually not as gelled as jelly.
  • Preserves are made from fruit chunks or whole fruit surrounded by syrup or jam.

Oh, good, thank you, now I know that I make preserves.

Okay, Uncle Bob: how do you get rid of the astringency of the skin of the Wild Plum? In the past I could never accomplish this.
