Forage and Make Jam

Raspberry Jam

Welcome to September. As I have been enjoying the sunny days of late I have been spotting the berries coming to life on the hedgerows. This month you can forage for blackberries, crab apples and the last of the elderberries. I have also managed to find some raspberries.

With a successful forage I have turned my berries into homemade jam. This is a super quick jam recipe that is set using the natural pectin found in apples. It will all become clear when you check out this recipe. I have made mine with raspberries but it will also be delicious any other berry.

Berries are a nutritional power house. Dark-skinned berries like blueberries are highest in antioxidants, which help to counter environmental damage to our cells. While raspberries are full of manganese, great for stabilising your mood.

Raspberry and Apple Jam
