Black currant jam with chocolate is a delicious and easy-to-make treat that combines the tartness of black currants with the sweetness of chocolate. Here’s a simple recipe to make this jam:
- 4 cups black currants, washed and stemmed
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 oz. dark chocolate, finely chopped
- Combine black currants, sugar, water, and lemon juice in a large pot. Stir well to combine.
- Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens and the berries have broken down.
- Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool slightly. Use an immersion blender or food processor to puree the jam until smooth.
- Add the chopped chocolate to the warm jam and stir until the chocolate is melted and well combined.
- Transfer the jam to sterilized jars and let it cool to room temperature before sealing the jars.
- Store the jam in the refrigerator for up to a month.
