    Thanks @MildredM for the videos! Really handy to see. I don't think mine really went that ferocious with the boil so thats good to see. I can see what you mean about the wrinkling too.

    We've actually got some of the blackberries left in the freezer so might give it another go!

    Blackberry jam is good to make, pretty similar to rasp jam! Gentle simmer to cook them, add juice from 3 or 4 juicy lemons, add sugar with the heat really low until it has dissolved then up to a rolling boil. You should feel it thicken the same way as raspberry jam does then you can start testing for a set

    Keep us updated! By January you will be making marmalade!!

    Unless you totally dislike the taste of oranges you may change you mind when you make it yourself, it’s a totally different kettle of fish to the bought stuff!

    And if you use a pressure cooker to cook the chopped peel you will achieve the most intense orange flavour.

    Question: I have frozen blackberries. Can I cook these from frozen or do I need to defrost them?

    I would put them in the pan with the lid on, heat on REALLY low and allow to slowly defrost then turn up the heat to cook through. They won’t take long to defrost.

    Ah cool. Might give that a go this evening. I think I’ve got about 1kg maybe a little less of blackberries. Would the juice of 3 or 4 lemons work for that quantity?

    Yes! Go for 3 if they are decent/juicy
