Blueberry-Blackberry-Currant Jam with Vanilla
Ah, this lovely creation appeared on a Sunday afternoon, and it's well worth repeating. I had blueberries that Per and I picked in Dalarna, red currants from raiding Per's parents' bush, and some leftover blackberries in the freezer. I combined all three (about 250 g blueberries, 100 g blackberries and 150 g red currants) with 500 g of jamming sugar (that'd be sugar with added pectin) and two split-open vanilla beans. After bringing it to a boil, I boiled for two minutes, skimmed, removed the vanilla, and poured into clean jars. That's all there's to it!
It's lovely to eat with a bowl of filmjölk (fermented milk - doesn't that sound lovely! - sort of like yogurt, but less sour. Read wiki here.)and a sprinkling of demerara sugar.
