Blackcurrant jelly may bubble up into Varoma during cook time. If this happens, reduce temperature to 105°C and extend cook time as needed to get jelly to setting point.

Setting point test: place a saucer in freezer (5-10 minutes). Place 1 tsp jelly on chilled saucer. When jam has cooled, push it with your finger - it should wrinkle when pushed. If not, boil jam for a further 2 minutes and retest.
