Good to know
- Storing: Make sure to save your store-bought jam in the container it came in. When opened, store it in the refrigerator if you are not using all of it right away. If you are making your own jam, follow the instructions regarding storage and shelf life in the recipe to ensure food safety.
- Shelf life: Jam has a shelf life of several years when unopened. When opened, the shelf life changes to half a year/a year, depending on the jam.
- Organic: To make this recipe organic, only use organic ingredients.
- Preparing the jam: If your jam contains a lot of seeds and chunks, you can use an immersion blender to make sure the jam is smooth. This is especially recommended when you are using a syringe or narrow piping tip to fill cupcakes or other desserts with the jam.
- Tip: If your jam filling appears to be too thin, just mix in some vanilla sugar and let it sit for a few minutes.
Know What You Eat
Both when buying food or when making your own, it is important to inform yourself about the nutritional value. Have a look at the nutrition label, learn about your serving size and what nutrients this product will bring to the table.
If you want to compare different products and their values, it is easier to look at a label where the values are given per 100 grams. This way you get a better understanding of the categories certain products belong to when it comes to nutritional values. Is this a product with a high sugar content? Does it contain a lot of fibre? How does this product measure up if I am looking to stick to a low-sodium diet?
Keep in mind that if you are looking to eat healthily, you should not just avoid eating fat and/or sugar. We need both in our daily diet. Make sure however to be aware of where you get your lipids and sugars from. As a rule of thumb, you could say; variation is very important in your diet and in general, the closer your food is to come straight from the source, the better.
