1. To make jam, place berries, sugar, water and lemon juice in a saucepan and cook over a low heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30-35 minutes or until jam gels when tested. Stand for 10 minutes, then pour into hot sterilized jars. Seal when cold.
