The wonderful lady behind The Gourmet Jar, Apeksha Jain, shares with Bake Box a few tips on how to make good jam.
- Never use over-ripe fruit for making jam as the amount of pectin reduces in the fruit as it ripens, which will make it difficult for the jam to set.
- A dash of lemon helps the jam to set better.
- Skim any froth that bubbles to the top while cooking the jam.Add only as much water as is needed to create a syrup. Too much water will mean over-cooking the fruit which results in reduced flavour.
