6 New Ways with Jam


The sweet preserve – jam

Jam is a popular preserve made of sugar and various fruits and is usually spread on toast at breakfast, used as a dessert topping or cake filling. Whatever the flavor of jam you want to make, once you have perfected the ideal jam-making technique, you will be making a batch every week!

This recipe can be used to make any kind of jam,

N.B. If you are using a fruit that isn’t a berry, add 7 cups of sugar instead of 4!

  1. Either pick or buy your fresh berries, and get your ingredients of fruit, sugar, and a ½ cup lemon juice.
  2. To make strawberry jam, about 6 cups of mashed up strawberries is needed.
  3. Boil your jam jars for 10 minutes to sterilise them.
  4. Cut leaves or stems off berries and wash.
  5. Mush up the fruit a little – enough to release the flavours and pectin but not so much that it’s totally smooth.
  6. Add berries to a pan and bring to the boil.
  7. Boil the jam jar lids in a separate pan full of water.
  8. Add the 4 cups sugar and stir in, bringing to a full boil for 1 minute.
  9. Let the jam stand for at least 5 minutes.
  10. Fill the jam jars with the jam using a funnel and place the lid on.
  11. Place the jars in a large pot of boiling water, ensuring the water covers the tops of the jars by about 2 inches. Leave for 5 minutes.
  12. Remove jars from pot and leave to cool overnight.
