I always make sure to have one entire jar tucked away for my holiday baking and use it to fill my favorite German Christmas cookies like my Poppy Seed Sandwich Cookies or my Spitzbuben Cookies.

For this recipe, you need jam sugar / jelling sugar. Jam sugar gives the homemade Christmas jam its much-needed firm texture. For jam sugar substitutes and alternatives, head over to this article.

Storing homemade jam: 

If you’ve sterilised and sealed your jars properly the jam should last for up to a year unopened. Once opened, store in the fridge.

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups frozen berries / 500 g
  • 1 3/4 cups mulled wine
  • 1 piece approx. 50 g ginger
  • 2 1/4 cups jam sugar / jelly sugar 500g
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 star anise

Instructions

  1. Heat the mulled wine with the spices and let it steep for about 15 minutes. Put the berries in a tall saucepan, peel the ginger, finely dice and add. Pour in the mulled wine and stir in the jam sugar. Bring everything to a boil while stirring and let simmer for 4 minutes. If you like a smooth jam, you can now blend it.

    Fill the jam into glasses, close and let cool down.

    Close the jars and place them upside down for about 15min (this ensures that the lids create a tight vacuum). Merry Christmas!

  2. The jam can be stored in a cool place for about 1 year.
  3. But of course it tastes best now at Christmas time!
