  • 1 kg sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice or to taste

How to Make Mixed Fruit Jam

  • 1.Put the fruit in a steel or glass container, cover with water and keep overnight.
  • 2.Transfer to a heavy based sauce pan, bring to a boil and cook till soft.
  • 3.Strain through a soup strainer or blend and strain.
  • 4.Put back onto the stove and bring to a boil again and cook, stirring to avoid scorching.
  • 5.When slightly thinner than jam consistency, add the sugar and lemon juice.
  • 6.Lower the heat and keep stirring till sugar is dissolved (not letting it coming to a boil before that). When sugar is dissolved, bring to a boil and cook, stirring all the time (else it will caramelise at the bottom and change flavor).
  • 7.When a drop placed over a cold surface sets, the jam is ready.
  • 8.Store in sterilized airtight jars.
