Time for a new segment, a DIY friday. There are always products who can easily be purchased. But it is a lot more fun to make them yourselves. This week I made some jam, inspired by a basic jam recipe fom Suikerinfo .
I had some left-over Conference pears and that’s why I decided to make some jam. Has always been on my to do list.
It was pretty easy to make jam. Basicly all you need is some fresh fruit which you turn into puree and some sugar. I added some extra flavour and the taste turned out to be great. Like the smokeyness of the jam. Can recommend this combination!
Soon I will try some new combinations for a jam.
1 kg Conference pears
500 grams gelling sugar
1 cup of Lapsang Souchong black tea
Clean the pears and puree them with an immersion blender. Put the pear puree together with the sugar and tea in a pan. Boil it for about 5 minutes.
Transfer the puree into a jar, fill it up until the edge. Close the jar and put it upside down for 5 minutes. This will clear out the air. Turn it back up and let it cool.
Now you have your own jam, keep it in a cool place until you open it. When you open it you can preserve it in the fridge.
