We all love berries not only for their excellent taste and aroma, but also for all the benefits they bring to the human body. Unfortunately, during the heat treatment of fruits, most of the beneficial properties that are so necessary in winter are lost. But there are ways to make an excellent, fragrant jam from ripe raspberries absolutely without cooking for harvesting for the winter.
The specifics of making raspberry jam without cooking for the winter
According to this recipe, the jam is as tasty, fresh and vitamin-rich as possible, the berries in it taste and aroma - as if they had just been plucked from a bush. No cooking is required for cooking, the preparation includes two main components - raspberries and sugar.
If the berries are watery, too soft and not sweet, the amount of sugar is increased by 30-40%, then cold raspberry jam will not ferment during storage.
Moreover, sugar for the recipe, in any case, should not be spared, sometimes many housewives always put it a little more than necessary. This extends the shelf life of the jam and only makes it tastier and richer.
Preparation of berries and containers
Before cooking, the fruits are sorted out, rejecting all spoiled and rotten ones. It is advisable not to wash the raspberries, you must try to buy or pick clean berries yourself. But if this is not possible, then the fruits are carefully immersed in a bowl of water, and then dried using paper towels.
Cans are washed and sterilized using a microwave, oven, or steam. But some housewives simply pour boiling water from a kettle on well-washed jars.
How to properly prepare a treat?
Despite the fact that making jam without using any heating or cooking is a fairly simple process, in order to do everything right, you need to know some of the nuances.
This is a simple, but insanely tasty and healthy option for harvesting raspberries for the winter. With this method, the lion's share of vitamins and nutrients is preserved, as well as fresh, rich taste and aroma. The preparation itself takes about half an hour.
- raspberries - 2 kilograms;
- sugar - 3 kilograms.
Preparation: first of all, you need to select the right berries. They should be bright red or ruby color, depending on the variety. The main thing is that the raspberries are ripe, dense and sweet, but preferably not overripe. All spoiled and rotten fruits are immediately discarded, and the stalks are torn off from those suitable for making jam.
Pure raspberries are poured into a basin, a third of the sugar is added and left for 2-3 hours to give juice. After that, the rest of the sugar is poured - it is very important that it completely covers all the berries. Then, using a wooden (plastic or silicone) spatula, thoroughly mix the contents of the basin. Then they take an ordinary mortar or meat grinder and process the ingredients until smooth.
For convenience and to save time, it is best to use a blender or food processor. The resulting jam is left in a bowl for 5-6 hours at room temperature. This is necessary in order for the sugar to dissolve well. Usually, when cooked in the evening, it is left to infuse overnight. In the morning, the jam is already quite ready. It is consumed both fresh and rolled up in jars to feast on in the long winter.
The addition of lemon or citric acid makes the color of the jam brighter, tastes more piquant and extends the shelf life. In addition, it is an excellent remedy for colds.
It is easy to make: for 1 kilogram of raspberries, take 1.5 kilograms of sugar and 1 large lemon. It is pre-scalded with boiling water and rolled through a meat grinder, along with bones and skin. Then the lemon puree is thoroughly mixed with the twisted raspberries, and the jam is poured into the jars.
