Nectarine Jam





Introduction: Nectarine Jam

this recipe makes about 1 cup and a half of jam, if you like you can double the recipe. 

Step 1: Ingredients

you'll need:
3 median sized nectarines
1/2 cups sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp pectin (or jam setta) 

First, chop up the nectarines into small bit sized cubes. Then place the nectarines into a small saucepan and chuck in the lemon juice and the pectin, bring it to the boil while stirring constantly.  

Step 2: Simmer It

Once it's at the boil add the sugar and reduce to a simmer, cook it for about 5 minutes. or until thick.
To test if it is ready, place a drop of the jam onto a plate and let it cool, if you can draw a clean line through it with your finger then it's ready.
Ladle the jam into a clean glass jar and seal it while it's still hot, this way it's be airtight once it cools.

    I just made this jam. it is awesome. thanks for posting.

    That looks great! Do the pieces soften up pretty good or is it a chunkier jam?

    Thanks! The pieces do soften up cause the nectarines are quite soft :)
