Most kids love to eat bread by smearing it with dollops of tasty jam. However, store bought jams are loaded with preservatives and other harmful chemicals. Here is a simple recipe of homemade grape jam which can be prepared in just 10 minutes. Fresh honey is used in it instead of sugar.

Ingredients

¼ piece apple (cut into small pieces)

400 gms black grapes (seedless)

12 cup honey

Juice of a lemon

Preparation

Add the apple pieces into blender

Blend it into a fine paste and keep it aside in a pan

Cut 4 -5 grapes in half and save it for later

Blend the rest of the grapes into a paste without adding water

Pour this mixture into the same pan

Put the pan over the heat and stir well for 5 minutes

Into it add the honey and cook on medium flame

When the mixture begins to thicken up, add the lemon juice

Add the grapes which are cut in half into it

Crush these grapes a bit using a spatula and the jam begins to thicken up

In order to check whether the jam has reached the right consistency, put a spoonful of jam into a plate and tilt it. If the jam doesn€™t flow, it has cooked well and has the right consistency

Turn off the flame and allow it cool down

Transfer the jam into a sterilized glass jar

Close the lid of the jar only after the jam has completely cooled down

This jam can be refrigerated and used up to 6 months.

Notes

A substance called pectin is required to turn the jam into a gel like consistency. Fruits like apple and papaya contain pectin naturally. So a small piece of apple is used in this recipe. Similarly instead of artificial preservative, lemon juice is used.
