A rich and indulgent Pickle for the Christmas pantry. With dried vine fruits, cranberries and figs, some fresh pear for sweetness and dark muscovado sugar that gives this a lovely depth of flavour. Serve with cold meats and cheeses at Christmas time.
If you don’t have an abundance of fresh berries to hand, use mixed frozen berries instead; the bags often contain a good amount of varieties. Redcurrants and blackcurrants are high in pectin, which will help this jam set naturally. So make sure there is a good quantity of currants in the mix.
