Homemade Grape Jam

The store brought jams,toppings and preserves have large amounts of sugar and less of fruit flavors compared to the home made stuff.My mother used to prepare all kinds of jams and that varied esp with the seasonal fruits because those are very economical during that particular season and can be used for a long time as jams.We used to love chapathis rolled up in jams as kids.Recently,I got a packet of grapes for a reasonably cheaper rate and so the first thing that striked my mind was to make jam.Jam making is not that difficult task just that you require to keep stirring till you finish.Usually,grapes are boiled and mashed to make jam but here I have simplified this step by simply pureeing the grapes.Do try this method and enjoy your home made jams !!!


Ingredients
grapes 3 cups
sugar 6 tbsp(refer notes)
lemon juice  2 tbsp /citric acid 1/2 tsp



Method
-Wash and stem the grapes.Put it in a blender without adding water.Blend it 3-4 minutes,strain the juice and add the remaining coarsely ground skin and blend again till smooth or atleast 3/4th done.
-Heat a non stick pan and pour the pureed grapes mix and keep stirring on medium heat.(Check not to burn the bottom of the pan)
-Add the sugar and mix again.Then,add the lemon juice or citric acid ,keep stirring.
-Wait till it thickens in consistency.(takes about 25-30 minutes)
(TESTING)-Add a tsp of jam in  a plate,chill about a minute and tilt the plate.The jam if ready will not be runny.
-Put off flame and let it cool completely.
-Spoon in bottles and use for bread !!



Servings ~ 1 small bottle


NOTES
* You can add sugar as per the sweetness of grapes and also as per one's sweet tooth.
* You can also add water about 3/4 th cup to increase the quantity but I haven't used that.
