Jams are a must for your breakfasts! How is jam stored? What should be done to keep its color, flavor and sugar free for a long time? We have put together all your questions and recipes with delicious sugary and sugar-free jams.
First of all, you should pay attention to the quality and freshness of the fruit as in every recipe. Make sure that the fruit you will make jam with is organic and suitable for the season.
If you are going to make a jam with fruits such as blackberry, strawberry, raspberry, start making the jam as soon as it is bought. If you use hard fruits such as quince and apple, clean the stained, rotten parts on the fruits with the help of a knife.
As mentioned in our recipes, let the fruit stand for a while before boiling. Thus, the fruit's own juice and taste will be revealed. It is important that the additional water you add to the jam is drinking water.
You should prefer wooden spoons instead of metal spoons.
Adding lemon juice and lemon salt to your jam has a positive effect on both consistency and storage time.
When boiling, you should take the foam of the jam with the help of a spoon. Do not leave your jam alone in the pot. To prevent froth you can add 1 teaspoon of butter.
To determine whether the consistency of the jam, take some with a wooden spoon and drip it in a glass of water. If the drips go to the bottom of the glass without spreading then the jam is cooked to the full consistency. To increase the consistency of a juicy jam, you can continue to boil after chopping one apple and adding into it.
We can hear you say, what about storage conditions... We recommend small 1 liter jars instead of very large jars. Make sure that the jars for the jams are washed with hot water and dried in the oven before use.
You made your jam, don't wait to cool to put it in jars. Immediately fill the jars when hot, close the lids tightly. Turn upside down and allow to cool. The biggest mistake is to wait for it to cool down before filling it into jars.
