Unpasteurized preparation of sea buckthorn jam:
Step 1: prepare the berries.Sea-buckthorn berries are very tight to the branches, so take the scissors and carefully cut them into a large, deep enameled bowl. Take away the spoiled, rotten ones, and cut the stalks off with the scissors and throw them into a large deep colander. Rinse the sea buckthorn under running water from various kinds of contaminants and leave in a colander so that all the water is in the glass. Then put the berries back in the washed bowl.
Step 2: cook the jam.Turn on the stove, to a medium level and put on it a pan with the right amount of clean distilled water. After the water boils, pour the right amount of sugar into it and boil the syrup for 5 to 10 minutes until the sugar is completely dissolved, periodically stirring it with a wooden spoon or wooden kitchen spatula. Then pour the syrup into a bowl of berries and let them brew for 30 to 40 minutes. After that, put the bowl with the ingredients on the stove and cook the jam for 10 minutes on a weak rut, constantly stirring and removing the foam using a slotted spoon. Time is considered after boiling the total mass. Then put the jam in a cool place and cover the bowl with a lid. The next day, boil the jam again for 10 minutes, not forgetting to remove the foam with a slotted spoon, and leave to stand overnight. On the third day, boil the jam for 15 minutes.
Step 3: close the jam.After you have boiled the jam for the third time, take the ladle and pour it hot into the sterilized jars that cover with sterilized lids for preservation and immediately roll up the prickly for preservation. Moisten the jars with a damp kitchen towel and turn them upside down and place them on the floor. Lay a wool blanket on top for preservation so that there are no gaps between the floor and the blanket, so the jam will cool gradually without sudden changes in temperature. Put the cooled cans in a dark, cool, well-ventilated place, such as a pantry, basement or cellar.
- - You can apply this method of jam preparation to any other fruits and berries, for example, currants, strawberries, cherries, apples, pears, and many others. Of course, do not forget that less pasteurized jam preserves less vitamins and nutrients than pasteurized jam, but the taste qualities of both the first option and the second are identical.
- - Remember that during any preservation all the equipment that you will use in the preparation of your workpiece must be thoroughly washed with detergents or soda, sterilized or treated with boiling water!
- - To prepare this type of jam, sea buckthorn berries can be chopped in a meat grinder or in a blender, and after that, cook the jam according to the above recipe.
- - Very often, a stick of vanilla and cinnamon is put in this type of jam for a more exotic flavor. These spices are placed in the last third cooking and after they are removed.
