- Rinse the red currants, clean the steams and put them in a medium or large pot. Add a little bit of water just so that it covers the bottom of the pot. Cook the berries, stirring occasionally until they’re soft, around 3-5 min, depending on the number of currants. Once cooked, pass them through a food mill (I usually use a metal strainer), and discarding the seeds and the skin from currants.
- Weigh the puree. For each pound (kilo), add the same amount of sugar to the pot.
- Mix the puree and the sugar in the pot and cook over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved, and let it boil for 5 minutes, turn off the heat and skim off any of the top layer junk.
- Put the jam into clean jars up to the top, and cover with the lids. Turn the jars upside down and let cool completely.
