I’ve been making preserves for a few years now and thought I would share the process. Our neighbor has a persimmon tree so we thought we’d try making jam out of them. Making jam is surprisingly easy – if you don’t care too much about the thickness of the jam. To make it, you need the following:
- 2 cups of sugar
- 2 cups of fruit, cut small
- Ball jar(s) with a capacity of about 3 cups
- Sauce pan
The persimmon jam turned out too thick. We think it’s because it didn’t give any moisture during the boiling process, so we’ll be trying again after letting the persimmons ripen further. Other than that, it was pretty tasty!
