Mahonia Jam

Mahonia jam Energya Ltd

Mahonia has a lovely blueberry flavour and is full of vitamins: the berries are full of vitamin C. Careful when you pick them as your hands will turn a bright fuchsia! Wear gloves when handling the berries. To make the jam you will need to sieve out the seeds and the result will be a glossy, jelly-like beautiful purple jam.


300 gr Mahonia berries

250 gr sugar

50 gr water


In a large pan boil the berries with a little water on a medium heat for 10 minutes until the berries are soft. Take off the heat and cool, then pass through a sieve ensuring none of the seeds pass through.

Bring back the berries to the boil adding the sugar. Cook on a medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes until the jam thickens – check by putting a drop of jam on a plate: if it doesn’t run it’s ready.
