    Pentland Film Society: "The Front Page"

    at Carlops Village Hall
    The Front Page - Dir: Billy Wilder, 1974, 105 min, USA, PG English Set in the prohibition era this shows how many things have not changed in the news business. Jack Lemmon is the hot shot reporter playing opposite Walter Matthau as the satanic newspaper editor. The action moves along swiftly, in a breathless Faustian farce and near-perfect comedy with a fine script and great characters.

BLACKCURRANT JAM RECIPE

For the Industrial Section
4lb (1.8kilos) blackcurrants, washed and strung
3 pints (1.7 litres) water
6lb (2.7 kilos) sugar
knob butter

1.    Place the fruit in a preserving pan with the water.  Simmer gently for about 45 minutes until the fruit is soft and the contents of the pan are well reduced, stirring from time to time to prevent sticking.

2.    Remove the pan from the heat, add the sugar to the fruit pulp, stir until dissolved, then add the knob of butter.  Bring to the boil and boil rapidly for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

3.    Test for set and, when setting point is reached, take the pan off the heat and remove any scum with slotted spoon.

4.    Pot and cover

Makes about 10lb (4.5 kilos) of jam.
