Cost Average budget


Step 1

Make pectin by chopping up two tart apples, and boiling them in a little water for 20 mins. Strain and set aside.

Step 2

Boil (can use microwave) and mash fruit.

Step 3

Heat jars in a water bath in the oven.

Step 4

Strain liquid into jam pan and boil with sugar and pectin. When it reaches a rolling boil, pour jam directly into hot jars and seal.

Step 5

Let jars cool slowly. Test to see which ones seal, and keep those that don't in the fridge.

Step 6

Note: in general you want 450g sugar per 600 ml liquid, (1lb sugar per pint),(2.25 cups to 2.5 cups).
