BLACKBERRY JAM with BRANDY & VODKA

Blackberries are one of my favourite fruits, so it is wonderful to have developed a recipe that will allow me to eat sweet, juicy blackberries, on my keto diet.  I use frozen blackberries for this recipe as I pick them myself at the end of each summer season and freeze them at home.  They have a much better flavour than forced out-of-season blackberries you can buy in the shops.  At just 2g per tablespoon, this jam is a daily treat you can easily afford – even on keto!

Ingredients – for two 1lb jars of jam

  • 900g          Blackberries – Frozen (Fresh blackberries can also be used)
  • 25ml          Skinny Syrup – Brown Sugar
  • 25ml          Skinny Syrup – Vanilla
  • 1 tsp          Vanilla Essence
  • 4 tblsp       Brandy or Cognac
  • 2 tblsp       Absolut Cherry Vodka
  • 3 tblsp       Chia Seeds

Method

  • Defrost your blackberries at room temperature if using frozen
  • Sterilise two 1lb kilner jars
  • Place the blackberries in a large heavy-bottomed pan
  • Add the two skinny syrups, the vanilla extract and bring to the boil slowly
  • Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and add the brandy and cherry vodka.  One can add more or less to taste.  Simmer and stir for approximately 10 minutes
  • Once the blackberries start to disintegrate into the jam, add the chia seeds and stir for a further two minutes
  • Remove from the heat and after a couple of minutes, ladle into the sterilized kilner jars
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard and refrigerate after opening

Serve on keto bread rolls, toast or keto scones, with lashings of creamy butter or whipped or clotted cream.  Enjoy!

NOTE: I OFTEN ADJUST MY RECIPES WHEN I FIND NEW INGREDIENTS AND WILL UPDATE THE RECIPES ON MY BLOG ACCORDINGLY (RATHER THAN PRODUCING ANOTHER RECIPE), SO PLEASE ALWAYS CHECK BEFORE MAKING.
