Easy Microwave Jam
« on: July 05, 2020, 17:24 »
Iíve not got my mazlin pan or thermometer out of the cupboard for a few years now as I find it so easy to make jam a couple of jars at a time as I pick the fruit.

This method is ideal for berry fruit, and I love raspberry jam, gooseberry jam and red currant jelly.

Ingredients

500g Berry Fruit - prepared and washed
500g Jam Sugar
150 ml water

Method



1.  Put the fruit and water into a large bowl without a lid, and microwave on 600W (medium) for 5 mins.



2.  Check fruit is cooked an add the warmed sugar. (I pop the sugar in the oven at about 100C while I sort everything else out).





3.  Add the sugar to the fruit and stir to start it dissolving.

4.  Microwave on 900W (high) for 10 mins.

5.  Stir an microwave for another 5 mins on 900W (high).

6.  Test for setting. If itís still a bit runny microwave on 900W (high) for another 5 mins.



7. Pot in sterile jars in the usual way.

Hi Aunt Sally!

Does this jam have the same shelf life as more traditional methods?

This year I've had to beat my rhubarb back with a big stick so it's been all things rhubarb .
It grew like mad and stalks like tree trunks .
That's a great idea for small batches.
Woman cannot live by bread alone , she must have cake , biscuits cheese and the occasional glass of wine .🍷

Itís simple and gives me just enough for my own use.

I think Iíll make a couple of jars of gooseberry next.  I have some in the freezer.
