Blueberry Jam with Rosemary and Thyme

DSCF0351

A savoury blueberry jam may seem a little unconventional, but when you think of apple sauce with pork, redcurrant jelly with your Sunday roast and sweet fruit chutneys with your cheese platter, its not such a strange idea after all. This jam is wonderfully fragrant with just the right balance of sweetness. Try in a brie toastie with rocket and even some rashers of crispy smoked streaky bacon. This jam is also a great dipping sauce for my herb crusted chicken nuggets.

Ingredients:

340g fresh blueberries

300g caster sugar

330ml white wine

160ml chicken stock

juice of 1 lemon

3-4 sprigs fresh rosemary

2 sprigs fresh thyme

Method:

– place the blueberries, sugar, wine, stock and lemon juice in a saucepan, stir and bring to the boil

– tie the herbs together into a bouquet garni and submerge in the liquid

– once boiling, reduce heat to medium and simmer mixture for around 20 minutes, stirring often, until thickened to the consistency of jam (better to be a little on the liquid side than too thick as it will thicken slightly after cooling)

– spoon into a jam jar or similar container and allow to cool before placing on the lid

– keep refrigerated and use within 2 weeks
