Black Currant Jam

2Kg Black Currants

2 Litres Water

    Method :    Pick over the fruit, removing all the storks. Wash the fruit thoroughly. Put it, with the water, into a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer gently until tender. The black current skins may be tough so ensure that the fruit is well cooked.
