Tips / advice / variants

* Maceration why ?

– For the fruit soaks up the flavors, tastes and flavors. Right here, juice and lemon zest, ginger

* Stir regularly why ?

– To prevent fruit and sugar attach to the bottom of the pan

– Be careful not to burn yourself. Indeed, who cooked jam to a rolling boil, même à feu moyen fait des sauts assez spectaculaires 🙂 !!! I put a lid, without completely closing the pan (view the photo) that every time I had finished stirring the mixture

* Sterilizing jars why ?

– To avoid health risks such as botulism

« Botulism is a serious neurological disease caused by a highly potent toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It develops especially in poorly preserved foods, and general illness caused by food poisoning. If botulism is rare, its mortality remains high when treatment is not immediate. "More information on http://www.pasteur.fr/fr/institut-pasteur/presse/fiches-info/botulisme

* Sterilizing jars how ?

– Boil in a large water jars and lids for at least 10 minutes after the first boil (I left 15 minutes after the first boil)

– Out carefully pots and lid and gently dry them on a clean towel (I cleaned the jars with another clean cloth qu''il because there was a limestone deposit thereon. J’espère que ce n’est pas une hérésie culinaire 🙂 !!!

– Once the pots filled with still warm jam, put the lid and seal

– Return the pots until the jam cools, this allows to empty,

to avoid that air enters the jars

* You can use ginger powder, 1 or 2 teaspoons depending on whether you want a more or less fragrant jam. You can do without one if you do not like the taste (yes people like these exist :-)J !!!) or replace it with cinnamon.

Treat yourself, feast your families, friends and keep us informed of your culinary flights of fancy and taste of your travels ...

    Excellente recette facile à réaliser.
    Le résultat est savoureux. C’est un vrai bonheur avec des toasts pour le thé.
    Une confiture à teneur en sucre réduite. J’ai mis de la panela (premier séchage du jus de canne à sucre) for 1/3 sugar.
    C’est très doux.
    Merci pour ce partage.

  • Del's cooking twist

    Un grand merci pour ton commentaire sur le blog concernant l’article sur les clés d’un blog réussi. Je t’y ai répondu (voir sur mon blog) et me voici désormais par ici à découvrir ton blog de plus près… j’y suis déjà passée il y a quelques jours. Bravo pour une très très belle entreprise, un bel aboutissement et tu peux être fier de toi et de ton entourage dont le soutien est des plus précieux! Mon coup de coeur va à cette recette, qui me rappelle la confiture de papaye testée à Cuba il y a exactement deux ans et dont j’étais folle. L’association avec le gingembre ici me plaît beaucoup. Il faut absolument que je trouve une occasion pour tester! 🙂
