A jam prepared using the Jamun fruit.
Time Required: 30 Minutes
500 gms Jamun
Quantity of Sugar will be half the measurement of the weight of the Juice extracted
(For Example: If the juice extracted is weighed to be 400gms then the Sugar to be added will be 200gms)
½ tsp Citric Acid
Wash the Jamun and put them in a thick-bottomed pan. Add water just enough to drown them. Add Citric Acid to it and let it boil for 15 minutes. Let it cool. Squeeze the juice out of the fruits in the water and sieve it. The seeds and skins will separate. Now, add Sugar and again boil the juice on medium flame. Stir continuously. The juice will slowly thicken into a jam consistency. Remove Jamun Jam from heat and store in glass jars.
Hint: To check whether the juice has reached the right consistency, drop a drop of the mixture in cold water. If the drop sinks to the bottom as a single blob it signifies that the jam is ready.
