This week i visited my grandma to cook with her jam. I love homemade jam´s cause they taste so much fruitier than jams from the supermarket. Also they are super easy to prepare and you can create many different variations by using different fruits or spices.
- 2,5 kg mixed fresh or frozen fruits ( i had blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, red currants)
- 1,25 kg organic jam sugar
- about 10 very clean jars
At first put all your fruits into a big bowl and cover with the sugar. Let it rest for at least 1,5 hours or over night.
Mix well the sugar with the fruits. If you don´t wanna have to much whole berrys in your jam you can puree it a little bit.
Now fill the berries into a large saucepan and cook over medium heat. If you have many whole berries it needs a bit longer to cook than with the pureed version.
The most important thing is the constant stirring so that the jam doesn´t burn. If the jam stops dripping from the wooden spoon it´s ready for bottling.
Turn off the heat and fill the jam carefully into the prepared jars. Use a funnel to work cleanly. It is very important that the screw isn´t dirty to prevent mold growth. Screw the jars on well and place it on the head for at least 1 hour. Let it cool and ready is your homemade jam!!!
