- Strawberries – 250gm
- Blueberries – 250gm
- Sugar – 400gm
- Lemon juice – 1 tbsp
Wash blueberries, hull the strawberries and wash. Add both berries and sugar in a blender and blend it to get puree.
Place 2 or 3 saucers or plates in the freezer for jam consistency test.
Heat a non-stick pan, add the puree and stir. Initially puree will be little watery. Stir continuously for 10 to 15 minutes. At this stage the puree will start to thicken. Now add lemon juice and continue stirring. Stir and cook for another 15 minutes. At this stage jam will be ready. Switch off the heat and do the freezer plates test to check the right consistency of the jam.
Take a plate from freezer take a teaspoon of jam and put it in the center of the plate. Wait for a minute, push your finger through the jam. If there is a skin on top that wrinkles then it is done. If not take the jam back to heat and cook for another couple of minutes and do the test again. Remember to switch off the heat while you are doing the test or else jam may get over cooked.
