Method

  1. Step 1:

    Prepare the fruit and crush thoroughly. Add the lemon juice and the sugar.

  2. Step 2:

    Heat slowly until dissolved, stirring occasionally. Add a small knob of butter or margarine to reduce foaming.

  3. Step 3:

    Bring quickly to a full rolling boil and boil rapidly for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Step 4:

    Remove from the heat and stir in the apple pectin – skim if necessary.

  5. Step 5:

    Allow to cool slightly to prevent the fruit from floating. Pot and cover in the usual way.
