METHOD FOR DAMSON JAM
Turn the heat up to high and allow the jam mixture to boil for about 10 minutes. Test to see if the jam has set / reached setting point (see video above). If the jam has not set boil for a further two minutes.
Pot up the jam into the warm (not cold) sterilised jam containers. Seal with a cap and label. Allow the jam to cool at room temperature before using.
