    Default Home-made Jam

    Last week at school in Food Tech, we made jam. I found it really interesting and fun, so Ive decided to make some of my own. Thing is, Im not putting nearly two cups of sugar in it, and Ive no strawberries.
    What I DO have, is raspberries and honey and apples, so Ive decided to use them!
    I made much more than I thought I wouldve, so instead of using one apple, Ive had to use two, or else there wouldnt be enough pectin (sp?) in it, and I dont want it all runny.
    Ive put it in the fridge to settle, and tomorow morning I'll be up nice and early to simmer it so it's ready for mum's breaky in bed
    I'll let you know how it goes!

    I've just put it in the jar. There's about half a litre of it, and it looks lovely. I left a little bit in the pot for dad to try (he's the jam expert) and he loves it.
    Im off to go shopping now (I need clothes for work experience) and Ive left specific instructions for mum not to touch it before it goes cold, because it needs to settle and thicken.
    Thanks for all the compliments, guys.

    If my daughter had made me some Jam I would still have a taste behind her back, lol. Just for the yum and pride factor.

    Ive never attempted to make Jam before but I love buying the home made jams from the markets. I bought Passionfruit butter and Lime marmalade today

    Di, my mum better not! I'd know though, because you know how on the jar lids theres this poppy thing, that you can press down? If mum opens the jar, it'll pop up
    I think it's called the air seal? Cause once I'd put the jam in, it sealed itself, so if mum opens it it'll pop up. Have I explained myself properly, or did I just confuse you more?
