Cheats Jam

Published Tuesday, 05 April, 2011 by Shakira

A very easy jam!



  • 500g of your choice of fruit (apples, strawberries, lemons and passion fruits work especially well)
  • 150g of sugar (plain white caster sugar is the best - simple, grainy, yet easily absorbed)
  • 500ml of cold water
  • 20g of powdered pectin


Place all ingredients into a large pan.

Place onto a blue flame on the hob.

Boil for roughly an hour.


Leave to cool.

Pour into sterilised jars.

This yummy, quick, cheats jam is ready to eat in about an hour!
