Jam Recipes

Put simply, home-made jam, marmalade and jelly is utterly superior to the sugary, chemical laden, commercial products available from most shops. It’s healthier, less expensive and kind to the environment too.

If you aren’t already making your own, then you are missing out!
With almost 200 hundred recipes, advice, tips, and specially commissioned photographs, Jam-Recipes provides everything you need to start making your own conserves. Whether you want to use up some surplus fruit, or you want to create delightfully packaged jams to give as presents, we have all the recipes, tips and guides you need.
If you still don’t know why you should make your own conserves, rather than buy them… 

  • Home-made jams contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives;
  • Fruit is often FREE – use surplus fruit at home, or forage for it in hedgerows;
  • It’s not complicated, and you need the minimum of equipment;
  • Reduce waste and turn old glass jars into new jam jars;
  • Use local produce and drastically reduce your ‘jam food miles’;
  • Your own jam tastes better – you made it.
  • Making conserves is fun – and after you’ve made them, you can eat them.

So, what are you waiting for, browse the recipes and have a go!

    Hi there,

    Love the site and Just wondered if you might be interested in doing something on this??

    Tate & Lyle® has launched the first ever Great British Jam Awards after recent figures have shown that sales of jams and preserves are currently in decline.

    The campaign encourages entrants to submit their jam creations in three categories:
    • Traditional Jam with a Twist
    • Jam Bake
    • Jam on the Rocks (a jam made with alcohol)

    The Awards will be judged by British Bake off Winner Edd Kimber and Tate & Lyle is hoping it will help reignite the nation’s love for jam as well as encourage a new younger crop of jam makers.

    The Awards will be hosted Tate & Lyle’s Facebook and Instagram channels, @WeLoveBaking.

    Budding jam makers can enter by sharing a photo of their creation alongside a short description and list of ingredients, including the hashtag #GreatBritishJamAwards. The competition closes on Thursday 6th July.

    If you need more information or would like recipes (we have some lovely ones from Edd), then would be happy to share them with you.

    Please do let me know your thoughts.

    Many thanks,
