So, I decided long back ago that I had to do it myself or I wouldn’t get to eat properly anymore. Plus jam is essential, in my world at least, for what would I eat otherwise for breakfast? Alright there is always French Toast, but my husband is the Toast master, I am more a self crowned Jam queen. Joke aside, we all know breakfast is THE meal of the day, right!? At least that’s what they are selling us all, well I must say a full belly in the morning gives me no reason to disrupt my daily work.
Before even making the jam I realized I didn’t have most of the required fancy toy equipments like my mum had. Thermometer, special jars with the rubber, jam pot and a proper spacious kitchen. My kitchen is 2 m² big, lets not talk about the size of the rest of the house, quoting my own self “Space is a luxury”. With all this in mind, I had to curb it all down a bit simpler. I was not bothered to check if they were selling Pectin somewhere around, cause I would end up searching and looking for one idiotic ingredient, wasting a whole day and my patience, so I simply left it out. Anyway its not that much required and I like more natural type of Jams.
Pectin is a jelling agent, kind of helps the jam to set quicker and better then simple sugar does. All fruits contain Pectin some more and some a bit too less. Something I didn’t know before making this recipe was that the skin of Passion fruits is rich in Pectin, and so can be boiled in little water to extract the pectin. I didn’t do that but will definitely try that out for the next time. I think Passion Fruit in general contains a good amount of Pectin which is recognizable at the jam end result, so this strawberry and Passion Fruit jam is Pectin tension free. Trust me it will set like a charm.
