Method

Berry mustard jam

Make a sachet with all the spices.

Add the dry blue berries, mustard seeds, red wine, raspberry vinegar, water, and sugar into a pot and cook on a low temperature until the blue berries get soft and the liquid reduces. Add the mixed berries (quarter strawberries). Cook slowly but try to maintain the texture.

Note: It’s important to keep some liquid, the fruit pectin and the mustard seed will thicken up the liquid.

Let it cool and use the next day. Do not remove sachet for 24 hrs to infuse the aroma of the spices.
