1. Blackcurrant
2. Seedless raspberry
3. Strawberry

1. Damson
2. Gooseberry
3. Strawberry

DC contend that strawberry tops both lists hmm

Clearly I am NBU. Strawberry jam is good jam but definitely not best.

You make a good list! I haven't had any sort of plum jam in years.

Apricot is my favourite, followed by strawberry.

NickMyLipple Tue 06-Feb-18 19:49:02

Plum and then seeded raspberry!

Morello cherry

Or bramble jam.

Or lemon curd. I know it isn't a jam but I have it on toast or in a tart so it's an honorary jam.

I hate blackcurrant anything (sweets, cordial etc) and actual blackcurrants, but blackcurrant jam is the best!!

Lime marmalade is my favourite thing though.

Lime marmalade and morello cherry for shop bought.

Love apricot and lemon curd too

It depends what it’s going on.

Apricot or blackcurrent for toast.
Raspberry on bread or in rice pudding
Strawberry for scones

Sour cherry jam is the best.

Rose petal is by far the best jam. You can find recipes online, or in a lot of Persian cookbooks, such as ‘Pomegranates and Roses,’ by Ariana Bundy.

I usually buy rose petal jam rather than make it. I buy it from Iranian or Turkish grocery stores in London.

Aside from rose, the only other jam I really like is strawberry.
