Making your own jam is very easy. The two core ingredients used in jam are fruit and sugar.

Experiment with jam recipes by using different fruit, or even other foods such as chillies or onions.

The only factor you need to consider when choosing the fruit for jam is that it must have sufficient quantities of pectin, acid and sugar.

If the fruit doesn’t have enough of these elements, then your jam will become too runny and your jam will not set.

The traditional fruits commonly used in orange jam, apricot jam, cherry jam, blueberry jam and strawberry jam all contain enough amounts of pectin, acid and sugar in them to make delicious jams. Experience, enjoy and start making happy jam for your family and friends!
