by | October 11, 2019

Nothing is better than homemade jam. Let’s just be honest — store-bought jam pales in comparison to the homemade stuff. The sweet and fruity flavor of blackcurrants mixed with hits of vanilla elevates this jam even further.

Created by blogger Daniela Ziatikova of Thrive By Daniele, this recipeis a must make to spread on toast, mix into oatmeal, and slather on PB&J’s for the kids.
