Lemon Jam Recipe
Homemade Lemon Jam Recipe
5 large lemons
¾ cup water
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
Wash the lemons. Using a cheese grater, grate the lemons to get the rind. Set aside the lemon rind. Cut away the white pulp around the lemons and discard them. Cut the lemons into thin slices and remove the pips. Save 10 pips and put them with the lemons slices and grated lemon rind into a pot.
Add in ¾ cup of water and start cooking the lemon mixture. When the lemon mixture is boiling, lower the heat and simmer for one hour. Remove the pot from the stove and scoop out the pips in the mixture. Add in the sugar and stir until the sugar has melted. Stir in 1 tablespoon of butter and return the pot to the stove.
Bring the pot to a boil and then lower the heat. Keep the mixture boiling gently for another 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pot. When the mixture thickens, test the consistency of the jam on a cold plate. Pour the jam into clean jars for storing.
