And I hope you like jammin', too.
I don't think Mr. Marley would mind if we all sang along while we are making jam!
Get your fruit, jars and a few other things ready to make spectacular jam/preserves/jelly/whatever. I'm a little inexact on the exact definition of the fruity stuff you put on toast - if only because SOMEONE is obsessed with the difference.
Me? I usually say "jelly" ... but its the fruity stuff you put on toast. In this instance I'm taking Tammy's suggestion and using honey instead of sugar. Normally I wouldn't put 4-6 cups of sugar in anything - which is why I love Pomona's Universal Pectin. You can use very little sugar (or honey) with Pomona's. It sets up beautifully and you can really taste the fruit.
Prepared calcium water and lemon juice
Before you get jammin' you'll also need lemon juice and to have prepared the calcium water per the instructions in the Pomona's box. You can keep it in the fridge and it stays good for several weeks.
Prepare the berries, then mix the pectin powder into the honey (or sugar)...
I only used about 2/3 cup of honey for a whole batch
The rest of the directions are easy peasy - add the ingredients, cook on the stove top for a few minutes.. then fill your prepared jars...
...and then process in a water bath for only about five minutes. How easy is that?
And then you can be jammin' too... we're jammin'.. jammin....
