Making jam from fresh fruit is not a new idea.
There are many recipes included in easily available books. We can happily recommend …. The C.W.A (Country Womens’ Association) and the P.W.M.U (Presbyterian Women’s Missionary Union of Victoria) cooking books – all excellent publications. You can get on the internet. You can ask a friend. Trends come and go in cooking. But essentially, jam recipes remain same…
• Pick, buy or be given the fruit
• Add sugar at some stage
• Bring to the boil
• Boil for just the right length of time
• Bottle it (which means pour into jars)
• Seal jars and label
The secret is….just keep on doing it….until you get in right…happy cooking.
