White Currant Jelly-Jam

One of my work colleagues brought some bags of white currants into work for us to help ourselves to.  Well, it would be rude not to, so I brought home a little bag marked 8oz White Currants.  As it was such a small amount currants I wanted to do something that would make the best of them so I did what I usually do and had a search on the internet and found this recipe for White Currant Jam from The Well Seasoned Cook.

It's a strange one, not quite jam, because you sieve the berries, and not quite jelly as it has a slight thickness from the white currant flesh.  Mine looks more like jelly than the picture on The Well Seasoned Cook, so I decided to call it White Currant Jelly-Jam.  It tastes similar to red currant jelly although I think it is a little sweeter, I love the peachy colour which develops as the berries cook and it sets really easily.

Here are some other ideas for fruit jellies that you might like to try

Oh how goooorgeous! I've never actually come across white currants, I've heard of them but never seen any on sale - and we're growing only red and black ones at the allotment. The colour of the finished jelly is so pretty!

Thanks Kavey. I don't think you will often see them on sale, but they seem to grow well in the garden.

I love that colour and I'm sure it tastes lovely too. I'm fast coming to the conclusion that white and redcurrants are seriously underrated. I wonder if I can find room in the garden for some.....

The only time I've ever seen white currants mentioned anywhere is in Nigella's Domestic Goddess book where I think she uses them for a gin and tonic jelly. I think they need to be more widely available as this looks so pretty.

I have an abundance of blackcurrants in my garden at the moment but my red currants are not doing so well. Think I need to get a white currant bush to make up the trilogy!

I've never tried white currants fact I don't think I've ever even seen a white currant before! This sounds lovely though. I will have to hunt some down!

That colour is amazing, I would love to try white currants. I think I read somewhere that they are silvery in colour, is that right? Your jelly jam looks delicious.

Oh wow what a lovely colour. I have never heard of white currants before, but I like the sound of your jam-jelly! Thanks for sharing my grape jelly as well :)

Lovely jelly Janice, my mother used to have loads of currant bushes and grow loads of them and make so much jelly.
