Manufacture apple pectin for plum jam
If the apple pectin content in the raw material is too small when producing jam. Then the thickening effect of pectin can be used, and 0.20% pectin can be used as a thickening agent. Here is a example of manufacture apple pectin for plum jam.
Put the skins of the plums in a pot, add 300ml of water, and cook on medium-low heat until the water is reduced by half. The plum skin becomes soft and the color of the water is already pink. Use a strainer to remove the California plum skin and save the juice for later use.
Peel off the skin of the red apple, use a corer to dig out the core, cut into strips, and then cut into small dices.
Mix the apples, sugar, and lemon juice together, put them in a pot, mix with the California plum peel juice cooked above, and heat over a medium-to-low heat.
After about 10 minutes, add apple pectin, stirring occasionally when cooking. So as not to stick to the bottom of the pot or burn.
Continue to cook until the jam begins to feel thick and reaches the end temperature of 103°C, which is the end temperature of the jam.
Put it into the jam jar while it is hot and invert it. After 30 minutes of inversion, wash the bottle body, put it at room temperature for 3-7 days. And then put it in the refrigerator.
