  1. Rinse, then hull the redcurrants.
  2. In a jam pan, or large, heavy-based, stainless steel pan, add water and lemon juice to the redcurrants. Cook until the fruits have softened.
  3. Pass the mixture through a food mill or fine mesh sieve.
  4. Pour the redcurrant juice and the sugar into a jam pan. Stir and bring to the boil. Once it is at a rolling boil, leave for 7 minutes if you have used a jam sugar, or for 15-20 minutes if you have used a regular sugar.
  5. Cook over high heat, stirring constantly. Check the cooking by pouring a few drops onto a cold plate and leaning it to one side, the jam should flow slowly down the plate.
  6. Skim if necessary. Fill the jam jars immediately. Seal tightly and turn the jars upside down.
