Easy Market Currant Berry jam

This simple jam is perfectly tart and full of juicy currants and berries.
Recipe Author Jessie Sheehan


  • 2 pounds currants any variety, frozen, or not
  • 3 pounds mixed berries frozen, or not
  • 3 3/4 cups granulated sugar


  • Place the currants and berries and sugar in a large pot and melt the sugar over medium heat. Once the sugar has melted and the berries and currants have released some juice, increase the heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil. If the mixture seems dry, add a few tablespoons of water. Boil for about 5 minutes, and then reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the jam reduces and coats the back of a spoon.
  • Transfer the jam to ball jars, and let cool to room temp before sealing and refrigerating. This jam must be refrigerated, but will last in the fridge for at least a month (and, if you ask me, MUCH longer . . . ).
