Making jam is quite therapeutic. You place fruit and sugar in a pot and stir the contents to make sure that they do not stick and burn to the bottom of the pan and hey presto at the end you have jam to put into your store cupboard. Effectively you are bottling up a taste of summer that you can open up and enjoy at any other time of the year. I made several pots of blackcurrant jam. My children have already done a spot of baking and they have used one jar making some fabulous little jam tarts – yum!
