    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    I often use currants instead of pectin in making jams. They add a lively tang and ensure the jam sets beautifully, especially since I use as little sugar as I can get away with. Use red currants and red raspberries together, or black currants with black raspberries.

      Love this recipe! So basic and so yummy! On my second batch I used 1 1/2 Cups of Honey instead of sugar. Not a bad substitute at all, but my next batch will be sugar again. Thanks!

      This is fantastic! I have some currant bushes in my backyard and was looking for recipes to use them. This is a keeper. I freeze my currants until the peak of raspberry season and then make it.

      With all the black currants and raspberries I had, I was really glad to find this recipe. The only thing I did differentaly was not to strain the currants. Just left the pulp, etc. in and added the raspberries and sugar. It tastes wonderful and has a wonderful color. I will be keeping this recipe for future use for sure. Thanks. Margo Friesen
