Boozey Blackberry Jam

Fermented blackberries, fresh blackberries, home harvested pith pectin, maple syrup, raisin, drop of gin… simmering.

Making the most of peel, pith and garden grown fruit. Soon I’ll be making some completely legal and totally above board fortified wine I think. But for now we have a boozy jam in the making.

Pectin Booze Jame
Starting the blackberry ferment with airborne yeast and a white sugar. Peeling citrus and reserving pith for pectin.

Not to waste the peel, so sugar water boiling them for candying.
