To cook the usual jam sometimes there is not the slightest desire. And then we turn on the fantasy, and the most unusual desserts are born, and, I think, that is how they came up with chocolate with salted caramel, compote with mint or jelly with basil.
Today we will cook a very fragrant jam, which can be served as a dessert, or add ice cream to them. It is so unusual, so tasty.
You can add any spices, but first cook with the spices that are presented below. And when you like everything - you can add it to anything you want.
Cooking time - 12 hours
Number of servings - 1
Ingredients for cooking:
- Plums - 1 kg
- Sugar - 1-1.3 kg
- Citric acid - 1/2 tsp.
- Badian - 1 inflorescence
- Cinnamon - 1 stick
- Carnation - 2-3 buds
We wash the plums and remove the bones. If you choose plums for this jam - pay attention to how easily the bone is removed. There are varieties where it is almost impossible to do this. If the plum is slightly immature - make an incision with a knife and even then remove the bone.
We pour in all the sugar, cover up and leave for the night. Plum highlight a lot of juice.
We put on a little gas and boil for 5 minutes after boiling. We remove the foam - because it harms conservation. Fully cool the jam.
Strain the syrup through a sieve. Let it stand for a while, so that the syrup is maximally drained. Plum is set aside and engaged in syrup.
In the syrup, add all the spices and cook for 15-20 minutes to a ball. Foam still remove. For the test, drip the syrup into the water with ice, it is more convenient to do it in a glass - if it is dissolved, boil it again. If the syrup remains a ball, then it’s time to move on to the next stage.
With a small sieve or skimmer, we extract the spices. Pour plums and cook for 5-7 minutes. Stir so that the flavored syrup soaks all the slices.
Preparing jars and putting plum slices. Pour in syrup to cover fruit.
Roll up with sterile caps and store at room temperature.
The jam is so fragrant that a little syrup can be added to the meat sauce, the aroma and taste will be very original.
Despite the fact that the ingredients are quite ordinary - they can be bought at the supermarket, the taste is nontrivial. If you add it to a cheesecake type cake, then you do not need to add other spices, it will be tasty and beautiful.
Treat your girlfriend with jam, and pour some brandy into tea - and you will have a pleasant, cozy and cheerful evening.
