Basic Microwave Jams
Make the most of summer berries and stone fruit with just the touch of a microwave button. You won’t believe how easy it is and this recipe is vegan friendly.
- Juice the lemon. Place fruit, lemon juice and the rind halves in a large microwave safe bowl. Cook, uncovered, on High/100% power, stirring occasionally for 6 minutes.
- Add the sugar and cook on High/100% power for 20 minutes or until the jam reaches setting point. (To do this, cool some jam on a chilled saucer and run your finger through it. If the jam wrinkles and stays separate it is ready to bottle.)
- Discard lemon rind and spoon the hot jam into a clean jar. Invert for 2 minutes then turn upright to cool.
