Everyone loves sweets, chocolates or sweet marmalade? Most likely, the answer will be in the affirmative. Of course, all this can be bought at the nearest store, but sometimes the quality of these products makes you think about the benefits and harms. Why not try making some of these sweets at home?
For example, you can make wonderful plum marmalade and even close it in jars for the winter. It turns out very tasty, it can be eaten instead of sweets or added to pastries. You can easily give such yummy to children and not worry about the consequences.
- Plum – 250 g.
- Sugar – 250 g.
How to cook:
1. Prepare the plum in order to turn it into marmalade. To do this, at the very beginning, rinse it and divide each berry in half, pull out the seeds. Place the plum halves in a bowl.
2. Sprinkle with sugar on top.
3. Mix and put on low heat.
If the plum is not too juicy (sometimes it is), don’t worry, this can be easily fixed by adding just a little water.
Simmer the plum over low heat for about twenty minutes.
4. Next, take the smallest sieve and grind all the plums through it.
5. Next, return the grated plums to the ladle and put it on the stove again, also on the very, very weak fire.
6. Start the process of boiling the plum jam. It should reach a very thick state. Plums should be on fire for about 20 minutes, but this process must be controlled, because each variety of plums will boil differently.
Checking marmalade for readiness is very simple – just take, for example, a saucer and drop a few drops of marmalade on it. If the droplet holds its shape and does not spread in different directions, then the marmalade is ready.
7. Pour marmalade into sterile jars and roll them up before winter.
You can immediately enjoy a delicious treat. To do this, after removing the ladle from the heat, pour marmalade into small silicone molds. When it hardens, you can serve it with tea and treat your family and guests.
Enjoy your meal!
