How To Make:

Step-by-Step Instructions

Chill a Plate: Begin by placing a plate in the fridge to chill. This seemingly odd step will be essential later to check the thickness of the jam.

Prepare Berries and Lemon Rinds: Chop and hull the strawberries, adding them to a pan on medium heat along with the raspberries and lemon rinds.

Initial Reduction: Allow the berries to reduce for 5 minutes, then introduce lemon juice and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves. For a smoother jam, use a potato masher to break down the fruit.

Boiling and Testing: Bring the jam mixture to a rolling boil for 10 minutes while stirring continuously. Test the jam’s consistency by placing a few drops on the chilled plate. If it wrinkles after pushing with your finger, it’s ready. Otherwise, repeat the process until the desired consistency is achieved.

Finalization and Storage: Remove lemon rinds, spoon the jam into sterilized jars, and seal. Sterilization can be done either in the oven or air fryer.

FAQs:

Q1: Can I use frozen berries?

A: Fresh berries are recommended for the best flavor, but you can use frozen ones if fresh aren’t available.

Q2: How long does the jam last?

A: When stored in a cool, dark place, the jam can last up to a year. Once opened, refrigerate and consume within a few weeks.

Q3: Can I reduce the sugar content?

A: The sugar content contributes to the jam’s preservation and texture. Altering it may affect the overall result.

Q4: Can I double the recipe?

A: Certainly! Adjust the quantities proportionally for a larger batch
