Any berry will work in old bachelor's jam. The layered fruit spread is ripe for experimentation. Here it's made with blackberries, raspberries, and kirsch and spread on the cornmeal crust of a blackberry tart. Some say the liquor-infused jam was named for its capacity to warm single gentlemen on winter nights.

    i love this recipe..especially when using it in the hubs fav dessert. for leslie..plate-test means that you put a couple small plates in the feezer while you are making your jam..and when you think the jam is done, you put a spoonful on the frozen plate and put it back in the freezer for a couple of minutes...when you pull it out, it should be a jelly.

    not sure what "plate-test" means, and when you say "can in water bath", what exactly does that mean?? how hot is the water?
