I am back with a new sustainable, homemade and healthy post.
Despite the fact that jam contains sugar, this jam on the flip side is made with foraged blackberries which are a great source of antioxidants and also very easy on the pocket!
After 30 minutes picking these beauties, I had 1 kilo in my bag ready for use.
REMEMBER – when picking wild berries, make sure you are choosing ripe berries from high up (waist height up upwards), avoid those near the ground and avoid those growing near busy roads.
REMEMBER – before using or consuming, wash the berries thoroughly, I use 3 parts water to 1 part white wine vinegar for 1 minute. Although it’s tempting to eat them straight off the plant, we need to be safe and make sure they are clean from dirt and bacteria.
