Today tell you how I Harvested red currant jam. Berries I got in large quantities from Tiffany, and I do not want to mess with them.
I love the jam, jam-like, ie, seedless and with a dense mass that is easy to spread on a sandwich. The red currant seed lot, but still it hangs on the branches. To remove it from the branches need to spend a considerable amount of time.
So I designed for an easy recipe that will allow me to avoid long and boring process of getting rid of twigs and stones. Today I share with you this recipe. I hope you will appreciate.
Redcurrants 1 kg
1 kg of sugar
Citric acid 10 c or the juice of one lemon
I wash out the berries first. Simply transfer into a large pot, fill with water and then I shift the berries in a different capacity. Thus all the dirt will remain on the bottom of the pot with water.
Clean the berries, without removing from the branches, sending in a pot, which then will be their cook. I fill with sugar, stir and leave for a couple of hours to give berry juice. The process can be accelerated for this berries kartofeledavilkoy be suppressed.
Put the pan over medium heat and bring to a boil. In periodically stir the cooking process. By the time of boiling the sugar has dissolved me. Once the sugar has melted - remove from fire.
To get rid of twigs and stones I filter everything through a sieve. In still hot jam I add citric acid and stirred until dissolved. Without waiting for cooling, spill jam on a pre-sterilized jars and lids close. The hot jam is very liquid and easy to pour.
Gem ready. I wait for complete cooling and storing them in the refrigerator. After a day jam becomes dense and cold will be similar to the jelly.
On a note:
It is better to use a pot larger volume. I for 2 kg of berries used the pan for 5 liters. During cooking, the liquid will boil and increase in volume.
After straining remains much cake. I pour it 3mya liters of water and bring to a boil. Strain through a sieve - and I get a delicious compote.
