Mulled Wine, Plum and Blackberry Jam

March 16, 2013Sew White

It is a great time of year to make this jam as plums are only 50p in my local supermarket so I’m guessing most of the supermarkets have similar deals. I produced 6 jars for only £6. The wine was the most expensive thing and lasted for 2 batches so 12 jars altogether.
Very good deal indeed.

A lot of gorgeous plums. The recipe called for 700g of plums (stones still in)  I used2 punnets which was roughly 1kg with stones. It seemed a shame to leave a few plums which most likely weren’t going to be used.

 

Add the blackberries and the mulled wine

 

Reduce the fruit down with the wine so it’s soft and mushy.

 

I reduced it down to a mushy consistency before adding the sugar. I used a potato masher to break all the fruit up.

Add the huge amount of sugar!
It was meant to be 1kg but I added 900g as I didn’t have enough. It was very sweet though, it taste lacking in sugar.

 

After filling the jars this was the state of my jam pan. We scooped up the jam with fresh crusty bread. It was lovely!

I found some gorgeous fabric so I made these cute patches to go on top.

 

Thats the best jam I’ve ever had!
