We are going fruit picking tomorrow and I'd like to make my own raspberry and blackcurrant jams - is it very hard? Do i need any special equipment, other than a very large saucepan?

You need a HUGE saucepan, a wooden spoon and a saucer.

Then you need sterile jars/pots to put it in.

Very easy otherwise. Although a bit scary when its boiling smile

I have a collection of washed jam jars and a huge Le Creuset pan. I will give it a go.

Am I right in thinking I can sterilise the jam jars by putting them through the dishwasher and then in a low oven for a while just before I fill them?

Yes - absolutely smile

Good luck and have fun!grin
