 Now that spring is finally here, there are a ton of different flavors to try and be delighted by. For example, apricots, pineapples, strawberries, and other spring fruits are in their prime, so if you like them, the time to eat them is now. However, if you’d like a new way to enjoy them, why don’t you try preparing some jam? If you want to learn how to make jam out of these spring fruits, continue reading!

How to Make Fruit Jam

The Ingredients

  • ¼ cup - lemon juice
  • 4 cups - organic cane sugar
  • 8 cups - your favorite spring fruit
  • Pectin (as instructed in its packaging)

The Tools

  • Big pot
  • Spatula
  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Masher
  • Measuring cups
  • Jars

The Instructions

  • Start by preparing the fruit. Make sure to wash them thoroughly, and to peel them if necessary. 
  • Chop the fruit off and put them in boiling hot water until they have a softer consistency. Then, use the masher to squash them.
  • Once you’re done, the next step is to add the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Use the spatula to mix it all together so it’s all evenly spread around.
  • Now you should take the pot to the stove and heat it up to a medium intensity for around 5 minutes. Always stir the jam so it doesn’t stick.
  • Next, you should increase the flame to its maximum and keep the jam there until thick bubbles start forming. Remember to keep stirring!
  • Take a taste out of your jam (after you let it cool for a bit), and see if there’s something missing to get the flavor just right. If there is, add it now and mix it in!
  • Lastly, turn off the flame and let the jam cool for a while. You can keep it in jars, gift some to friends and family, or enjoy a bit on toast as an afternoon snack.
