How to make jam
- 2 clean glass canning jars
- 500 grams of fruit, e.g. strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries
- 500 grams of jelly sugar
- A few drops of lemon juice
Jam can be made with all different kinds of fruit. When making your own jam, it's smart to use a large, high pot with a thick base. This is due to the jam sometimes splattering during preparation; so be careful! It's a good idea to use a high pot to avoid having your entire kitchen covered in sticky jam. To make sure your jam doesn't get too watery, it's better to clean the fresh fruit with a wet tea towel instead of under the tap. It is important that the jars are made of glass and can be sealed airtight.
Cut the cleaned fruit into small pieces and purée in a food processor. Then put all the fruit in the pan together with the lemon juice and jelly sugar, then bring to a boil over medium heat while continuously stirring. Keep stirring until the jam starts boiling. Keep stirring for about 4 minutes and then turn off the heat. If there is foam on the jam, scoop it off. Then fill the preserve jars with the jam and close them well.
