Carrot and Ginger Jam Preparation
- Start by peeling the carrots and cutting them into slices.
- Next, take the ginger and grate it until you have approximately 1 tablespoon.
- On the other hand, in a pot, bring water to a boil with cloves, add the cinnamon stick, and the 250 gr. of sugar.
- Let it boil over moderate heat while stirring a bit.
- Once the water boils, it’s time to add the carrot slices, the grated ginger, cover the pot, and let it simmer for about 25 minutes. Always at moderate heat.
- When the cooking is complete, blend the carrots until you achieve a paste with a firm consistency.
- Finally, fill the jars with the homemade jam.
- Preheat the jars in a water bath for about 12/15 minutes to vacuum-seal them.
- Ready to use, these jars are in perfect condition to be filled with this irresistible jam, which we will use without delay for breakfast or snacks!
- A helpful tip to keep in mind when checking if the jam has reached the right consistency is to run a spatula through the jam. If it flows over the spoon forming a thin, liquid layer, then it needs a bit more cooking. The ideal point is reached when a thick drop slides off the spatula but does so heavily.
- Remember to place the jars in a saucepan for a water bath for about 12 to 15 minutes to vacuum-seal them.
- Another simple but effective suggestion is to properly label the sealed jam jars with the date of preparation and the main ingredient of the jam.
- A final recommendation is to store the jam jars in cool and dry places.
