- 800g Strawberries
- 600g Sugar
- 1 Lemon
|Makes: 1.5 kg of Jam||Total time (min.): 1 hour 5|
Jam is a product made with whole fruit, cut into pieces or crushed. The fruit is heated with water and sugar to activate the pectin in the fruit. The mixture is then put into containers to set and can be spread on toast or used in cakes.
Setting point: The setting point is the most important part of preserving. To check, once the setting temperature has been reached, placed a drop of the mix on a chilled place. Leave it for one minute and then push the surface of the jam. If the skin wrinkles, then it has reached setting point. If not, continue to cook for a few more minutes.
