By Chelsea SugarTry this super quick mixed berry jam recipe, made in the microwave.3 servings
Prep time 5 mins
Cooking time 10 mins
500g berries e.g. raspberries, blackberries
2 cups Chelsea Organic Raw Sugar
1 tsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
Place berries and lemon juice in a deep microwave proof bowl (glass or Pyrex). Microwave on high power for 2 minutes then stir in the Sugar. Cook on high for 5 minutes then stir.
Cook for a further 5 to 8 minutes until the jam setting point is reached (104°C). A jam or candy thermometer to accurately gauge this temperature eliminates all the guess work.
Pour into 2 warm sterilised jars and seal.
Tip: To sterilise jars in the microwave half fill clean jars with cold water and cook on high 2 to 3 mins until the water boils. Carefully tip out the water and fill the jars while still warm.
Makes 2 1/2 cups.
