Select All
Step 1
Crush currants thoroughly, one layer at a time. Press half of pulp through a sieve to remove some of the seeds. Place pulp in large saucepan; add water. Bring to boil on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover. Simmer 15 min., stirring occasionally.
Step 2
Add pectin crystals; mix well. Bring to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir and skim foam for 5 min. to prevent fruit from floating to top.
Step 3
Pour immediately into warm sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of rims. Seal while hot with sterilized two-piece lids with new centres. Let stand at room temperature until set.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Food Facts
The best pan for boiling jams and jellies is a large, wide, heavy pot. A good choice is a nonreactive stainless steel pot with enclosed aluminum pad on the bottom. Other good choices are a Dutch oven or an enamelled cast iron pot.
How to Choose Currants
Black currants are great for making jams or jellies. Choose firm, ripe, dry fruit. Remove stems; black currants need blossom ends snipped for making jam.
