WATermelon Jam
Cuisine: Jams and Preserves
 
Ingredients
  • 4 cups – Watermelon cubes, deseeded
  • ½ cup – Orange juice
  • 1 tbsp – Lemon juice (optional)
  • ¼ cup – Granulated sugar
  • Few mint leaves (optional)
Instructions
  1. To start making the Watermelon Jam, add all watermelon cubes into the pitcher and using the S blade attachment blend the ingredients till it is completely smooth.
  2. Strain the juice into the 1.42L saucepan to remove any seeds. Add orange juice to this and on a low flame start heating it. I have used orange, as it has natural Pectin which helps the jam thicken and set.
  3. Let the mixture boil and reduce to half.
  4. At this point add sugar, torn mint leaves and lemon (if you like your jam tangy)
  5. Boil it till it reduces further and thickens. Dip and coat the spoon with jam. Remove, and run your finger through the middle of the jam. If a clear path is left, the mixture is ready.
  6. The jam thickens further as it cools.
  7. I use funnels or piping bags to put them in the jar as it keeps the jar clean. Spoon them or pipe them into the jar once it is completely cooled.
  8. Refrigerate and use when required.
