Home-made redcurrant strawberry jam!

Yesterday I invented this lovely red currant strawberry jam! Yes, a simple combined jam but a very good delicious one too! 🙂


Recipe: For a whole lot of jam!


1 kg red juicy red currants, cleaned, pad dry & no stalks please!

680 gr juicy ripe strawberries, cleaned, hulled & each cut up into 2 or 4

500 gr sugar jam that only needs 3 minutes of cooking

extra needed: sterilized jam pots & lids, a funnel, a smaller soup ladle


1. Take a fitted large cooking pot & add your red currants & strawberry halves in it. Add jam sugar & mix it through the berries with a spoon. Leave it to rest for at least 3 hours. The berries will absorb a lot of the sugar. Now, before boiling, I mashed a lot of my berries with a potato masher, like 25 times. That is what I want. You can leave them whole, if you like but you need many red currants to pop because they have that glorious pectin in them! 🙂

2. Heat up on medium heat. When boiling, lower your heat & let the mix boil for 3 minutes, stirring often. This is all said on the package. Fill, your hot jam into your jam pot until nearly full, with help of a funnel & soup paddle. Place the fitted lid really good on. Turn the pots upside down to make it vacuüm. Be careful not to spill any jam, it will be really hot! When cooled down, turn jam pots back & label them. Store them in a cool dry place for later use. Enjoy! 🙂  ♥ Stay Tuned & subscribe by email! Join 1,800 email subscribers now!!! It is free!!!! Click the link here below to subscribe!!!

  1. The combination of red currants and strawberries sounds delicious, kind of like rhubarb and strawberry. I love jam and really love making it. There is a special sugar for jam, I never knew that. I have to look for it. That jam is a beautiful vivid shade of red.

  2. I too did not know about sugar jam, will look it up to learn more. Love your fruits combo. Are the fruits from your garden?

    1. Yes, yes, Norma, all from the garden! 😀
      The fruits of our hard labour taste so much better!

  3. Fantastic! I love the combo of red currants and strawberry.

  4. We made your lovely jam & loved it too! 🙂
    Very tasty!

  5. What a fabulous combination – that must taste wonderful.

  6. Hmmm, sugar jam is new to me too, will research to see if it’s available here. Red currant and strawberry sounds delightful.
