For the final day of Blogging Marathon Week 2, I wanted to make something sweet. Jams are great to slather on bread slices. When thinking of what jam to make, I saw the sweet and cute apples sitting in my fruit basket. So I decided upon apple jam. Jam making is very easy and it involves very less number of ingredients. For this jam, it is apple, sugar and citric acid. Citric acid helps in avoiding crystallization of sugar during the process of jam making. The colour was little dull and so I added a few drops of lemon yellow colour to make it more appealing. To test the consistency of jam, take a teaspoon of jam on a cold plate and tilt the plate. If the jam doesn’t run, then jam has reached the correct consistency. Always sterilize the bottle before transferring the hot jam into it. The perfect jam doesn’t have air bubbles locked in. From the picture you can see that this jam is not perfect because it has a lots of air bubbles. But it tasted great.
