Ingredients

  • Damsons
  • Sugar

    Method

    Wash the damsons and just cover them with water. Simmer until the fruit is soft. Put through a sieve and weigh the pulp. Add 12oz sugar to each pint of damson pulp. Stir the sugar into the pulp until it is dissolved and then cook and stir for about forty-five minutes until the mixture is thick enough to hold the impression of a spoon. Pour into hot jars and cover. Keep for several weeks before use. It should be firm enough to slice and eat on bread with cheese.
