How Is Jam Made?
Updated: Jan 19, 2019
Making jam is a simple process once you have it down. Take some fruit, add some sugar and pectin, sometimes lemon juice is needed to get the right acidity for the pectin and sometimes butter is needed to reduce the foaming when bringing to a rolling boil and bottle it up. It's a messy process sometimes (usually)! If it contains Jalapenos or Serranos (same pepper family) I blend them using homemade limoncello to liquify it and I combine those in. Don't splash the boiling liquid on yourself - I did that with straight jalapenos and still have the scars to show for it.
