Select Your Ingredients

Check out your local grocery store or farmer's market for fresh fruit. Here, we used fresh raspberries and blackberries, but most fruit like strawberries, kiwis or blueberries can be substituted. To compliment the berries, we purchased raspberry vinegar, sugar, pink peppercorns and a young tawny port (recipe to follow). The port can easily be excluded, just increase the amount of sugar and vinegar. Don't forget the pectin! This is a powder that is a key ingredient in most jams and jellies.
