Black currant jelly

 
One of the first jars of black currant jelly for this year. 😊👍 This will be soooo good with steak this winter!

Let berries boil about 20 minutes with a little bit of water (approximately 5 cups black currants and 1/2 cup water), then drain the juice from the berries. Bring the juice to a boil with sugar (depending on how sweet you want it approximately 1 cup sugar for one cup juice, I sometimes take a little bit less), 1/2 to 1 minute. You might also need to add something extra to make the jelly get its form (if the berries are picked very early in the season you might not need it) it differs a bit from product to product so read the instructions. I sometimes use pectin or jelly sugar.
