Brie & Blackcurrant Tartlets

Blackcurrant Jam

YIELD: 2kg (4 1/2 lb) approximately

 

Ingredients

1 kg (2 1/4 lb) Si?cra Sure-Set Jam Sugar

1 kg (2 1/4 lb) Blackcurrants fresh or frozen

About 425 ml (3/4 pt) water for fresh fruit

OR about 150ml (1/4 pt) water for frozen fruit

 

Method

1. Remove the stalks, wash the fruit and put into a large saucepan with the water.

2. Bring to the boil and simmer gently stirring occasionally, to prevent sticking, until the fruit breaks down and the skins are soft. Fresh fruit can take up to 1/2 hour to soften, frozen fruit may only take 10 minutes, make sure all of the added water is evaporated off.

3. Add the Sure-Set and heat stirring until it is dissolved, then bring to the boil for 4 minutes.

4. Pot and cover in the usual way; label and date.
