To prepare jam need to take 10 medium size lemons.Fruits choose carefully and closely inspect that they did not have dark spots.Lemons take only a bright yellow color with a thin skin.These fruits are usually already matured and gained a more juice.This is exactly what you need.Selected products must be thoroughly cleaned and dry.
Take the knife and carefully cut away the fruit peel.We try to work carefully, so as not to accidentally cut off a piece of flesh.Thus obtained is carefully peel cut into thin strips.straw size do as little as possible, so that in the process of preparing the maximum she could seethe.
peeled lemons cut in half and squeeze the juice from each half.The remaining pomace not throw away.They are still useful to us.At this stage ends with a preparatory stage.All the ingredients are ready, and you can continue working.The question
Take a pot for cooking and put a couple of things that we have prepared: 2 liters of water, lemon juice, zest and pomace.Marc we put in a gauze bag, so they are not mixed directly with the basic weight.not recommended to dispose of them as it was bone white peel and the flesh itself with partitions contain the most valuable pectin, which will give our jam jelly-like consistency.The resulting mixture cook in an open pan for 2-3 hours on low heat.Content should be boiled down to ½.
Pan Remove from the heat and took out her bag with the remains of lemons.We put it on the screen and give the contents to drain.During this time, the bag cools down and it will be more thoroughly wring out.Thereafter pomace we no longer needed.Their continued presence may eventually make jam bitter taste.We put them in the bag.
