HFG tip

  • It is vital to sterilise your jars when preserving, to kill any harmful organisms and ensure your fruit is safe to eat.
  • A preserving pan is designed with sloping sides to aid evaporation when bottling and preserving, but is not essential. A large, heavy-based stock or soup pot will work well.
  • Pectin is a carbohydrate found in fruit that aids in the gelling or settling process. Apricots are not high in pectin but citrus fruits are, so the lemon juice is important if you want the jam to gel.
