Nothing better that starting the day with a coffee and a toasted bread with jam, both sweetened with panela. Today we will learn how to make our own jam.
- 500 g of wild blackberries.
- 250 g of panela (it can even be less if the blackberries are well ripe).
- The juice ½ lemon.
These berries must first be disinfected, washed, and drained. Put the blackberries, panela and lemon juice in a pot and let everything rest for at least an hour.
Cook everything together, first over a high heat and when everything boils, you have to lower the heat to medium. Let it cook for 40 to 45 minutes.
Note: Although it seems liquid, when beating and cooling it thickens quite a bit.
Now it is time to beat, carefully because it will be very hot and can jump. Once blended, it can be put in its final jar, but if do not like the seed in the jam, then we must pass the mixture through a strainer.
Finally, you have to put the jars, in which the jam has been store, in a pot, cover them with water and put them to boil in a water bath for 20 minutes.
And so, we will have jam that can last up to a year.
