Similarly one may ask, how do you check for doneness in a jam?
Pop a plate in the freezer at the beginning of your cooking time. Once you think that your jam has reached its setting point or has thickened, spoon a bit of the jam on the cold plate and tilt it vertically so the jam runs. You are aiming for a slow descent, not a runny mess. If it runs slow, it's set!
Also Know, how can you tell if jam is done without a thermometer? Points to remember
- The easiest way to test your jam is by using a sugar thermometer, bring the jam to 105C.
- For an alternate method, put your plate in the freezer for about fifteen minutes before taking it out to test a spoonful of hot jam.
Just so, how much pectin do you put in jam?
1 tbsp of pectin powder gels 4 cups of fruit. Use 2 tbsp. per 8 cups of fruit. The standard jam recipe is 8 cups of fruit, 6 to 8 cups of sugar, 1/4 cup lemon juice.
