Making jam at home is an easy and fun activity that you can do with your children and it’s also a great way to keep them entertained!

That’s why here at Great Harvest in Nashua we tell you how to make a delicious and natural homemade jam.

What You Will Need
8 cups of fresh fruit, it’s preferable to choose a mix of high and low pectin fruits (strawberries, apricots).
A box of pectin, you can find it in the supermarket.
4 cups of sugar
¼ of lemon juice
Half spoon of margarine or butter.

Getting Ready
Wash the whole fruit and sterilize the jar where you will be serving your jam. Crush the fruit into small pieces and get a frying pan ready with the margarine.

Let’s Get Started
Put the fruit in the pan and add the lemon juice, stir it gently and be careful it can burn in the bottom. Add the sugar until it dissolves completely and its time to incorporate the pectin as well. Don’t forget to keep stiring! Now under low heat let it reach its proper consistency.

Now its ready to be poured into your sterilized jar.

Storage
Keep your jam in a cool, dry area. Don’t expose it directly to the sun and remember that since you didn’t used any extra chemicals it should be consumed within a year.

As you can see it’s very simple and you will have lots of fun! It’s also healthy because you won’t be using chemicals that could harm your family’s health. We know how important this is for you and at Great Harvest we care!

That’s why our products are made with whole grain flour that guarantees that you will be eating the best bread in Nashua. You can put on it that delicious jam you just created for a healthy and delicious snack. And remember that our menu has a little bit of everything for everybody!
