Put the gooseberries in a large saucepan or jam pan and add the water. Heat gently, then bring to the boil.
Add the redcurrants and simmer until soft, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, warm the sugar in a low oven. Add the warmed sugar to the jam, stirring well to dissolve.
Bring to the boil and boil rapidly until setting point is reached, then remove from the heat.
Let the jam cool for 10 minutes, stir well and pot in warm dry jars. This amount makes 5-6 medium-sized jars.
