About Apple and Plum Jam Recipe

Jam is probably the best way of preserving the goodness of fruits and what better than a homemade jam, without preservatives. Apples and plums are high in Pectin. Pectin is a naturally occurring carbohydrate in fruits that is concentrated in the fruit's skin and the core. When cooked, Pectin solidifies to a gel, causing fruit preserves to set.

Apple and Plum Jam

Ingredients to make Apple and Plum Jam

  • 2 medium sized apples (or about 1.5 cups chopped apples)
  • 3 plums
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

How to make Apple and Plum Jam

  1. Wash, peel and chop apples. Wash and slice the plums to get rid of its seed.
  2. Take chopped apples, plums and sugar in a microwave safe bowl. Cover them and microwave for 10 minutes, until apples and plums are soft and sugar gets completely dissolved.
  3. Take the mixture out and cool for a few minutes. Blend it to a pulp in a blender/mixer. You may either blend it completely or may also leave few chunks of apples & plums.
  4. Transfer the pulp in the same microwave safe bowl. Cook for 5 minutes. You will notice that jam has thickened (no need to cover). Stir once in between.
  5. Now add lemon juice and mix well. Again microwave for 5 minutes. There will be a frothy layer and colour of the jam would become much darker.
  6. To check whether jam is ready or not, put about a teaspoon of jam in freezer section of the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes.
  7. It should turn out to be thick and consistency should like be of a jam. Spread it on a plate, if it is watery cook for few more minutes.
  8. Allow the jam to cool completely.
  9. Store it in a sterilized jar in refrigerator.

My Tip:

I suggest to always store jam in refrigerator. Always use clean spoon while handling the jam.
