Cooking StepsI found this recipe I take no credit in it, I just found that this app was missing a good Jam Recipe. ENJOY
Crush your fruit either by hand or use your food processor. You want the fruit to be broken down but still a little chunky.
Place a small plate or saucer into your freezer (for testing).
Put all the ingredients into a heavy pan and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to the lowest setting so the jam is just bubbling, then let it cook until the mixture starts to thicken. This can take anywhere from 15 to 50 minutes, depending on how much juice you have from your fruit, so just leave it to bubble away and check it every once in a while.
When you think it’s ready, take the plate out of the freezer and drop a little jam onto it. When it cools you will be able to test the thickness with your finger. (Getting to lick your finger is one of the perks of making jam!)
Once the jam is finished, pour into small glass jars leaving room at the top for expansion, then cover and refrigerate until needed. You can also use plastic freezer containers but if you do, let the jam cool first before pouring into the container.
Because this jam is all natural ingredients, it will only keep in the fridge for a week or two, so if you’ve made more than you and your family can eat in this time, just leave one container in the fridge and put the rest in the freezer.
