3lb of damsons
1 pint of water
3lb of sugar
Put the damsons whole into a pan with the water and bring to boil. Simmer for about 5min to soften the fruit, once the fruit is starting to open and break down, add the sugar. You may not need to add all the sugar.
Bring the mixture back to the boil and simmer stirring regularly and soon the stones will break free from the fruit and ‘float’ for you to remove with a fork.
Simmer for about 8 – 10 min and then do your set test - then jar up and leave to cool.
Bottled Sunshine and a holiday!
