Raspberry and gooseberry jam
The jam making season is underway. Last week I made two lots - gooseberry and elderflower, and raspberry and gooseberry. As gooseberries contain lots of pectin, there was no need to add lemon juice. The quantities of each were not great - 3 jars of each. However, the raspberry crop is ready for picking and it looks like it is going to be a good quantity. There will be more jam making over the next few days.
The photo above was taken when making the raspberry and gooseberry jam. It is made from equal quantities of both. Sugar was the same weight as the total of fruit.
