Summer recipes: jelly from jam, jam and jam
We like the summer not only for good weather, but also for the abundance of available berries and fruits, which are enriched with vitamins, beneficial microelements and phytoncides. They are very useful to eat fresh, but everyone wants to try the juicy taste of the fruit in the winter. To do this, make compotes, make jellies, jams, preserves.
Jam is a jelly-like product, in which berries or fruits are almost boiled soft, and a drop of it on the plate quickly thickens. Prepare the sweetness of fruits containing a large amount of pectin - black and red currants, apples, gooseberries, lemon, etc.
In order to prepare gooseberry jam, we will need:
- 500 ml of water;
- 1.5 kg of sugar;
- 1 kg gooseberry
Large and ripe fruits of a bush need to be thoroughly washed, dried and removed the stem. Then divide them into two parts by half a kilogram: chop one in a blender and combine with the remaining half.Stir the resulting mass with sugar, add water and cook over low heat, stirring non-stop. Jam pour on the banks, close and cool.
In order to make jam from apples, we need:
- 1 kg of sour apples;
- 800 g of honey;
- 1 glass of water.
Wash the collected apples and cut them into slices, remove the core and pour over boiling water for two minutes. Then mix the sliced apples with honey and a glass of water, boil on low heat, stirring every minute. Then we put the jam in glass containers, cover with parchment paper and tie it with rubber band or twine.
Jam and jam are very similar, they differ only in that jam is prepared from fruit puree or berries without adding water and with added sugar (700-900 g of sugar per 1 kg of puree). It is important that the jam does not burn: to cook it better on a low fire, stirring every minute.
