Simple Steps To Homemade Pomegranate Jam

WE HAVE PLANNED TO DO POMEGRANATE JAM EVER SINCE WE ARRIVED IN MARCH.. but we kept keeping it off till last weekend and it now June.  LOL... Anyway, better late than never!

Finally the day has arrived...I was getting all excited by then, never "witnessed" before how jam is done at home.  First thing, the bottles must be well sterilized and dried... and we did just that the night before so that all would be dry and clean the next day.

And then the process of jam making began.....
Yes, the recipe was placed on the table next to the ingredients....
Firstly, measure 4 cups of pomegranate juice and put them in a big bowl...
Secondly, put in 7 1/2 cups of fine sugar into it....
Bring them to a boil....
Add in the two sachets of Certo....
Bring them to a hard boil for 30 seconds...
Yes, I did the "timing" using my handphone... 
30 seconds and off the fire...
Scoop them into the bottles....
Tighten the lids and placed them upside down for 5 minutes...
Why?   I think it is something to do with "releasing air... :)
For each portion of 4 cups of pomegranate juice, we have 9 bottles of jam....
Yes, we did the whole process again and again for 5 times... 
Soon.. all the juice are finished...
And we have 45 bottles of Pomegranate Jam!
No..they are not for sale... LOL
They are "gifts"... 
How I wish I could take them home with me...
But as it is now, I cannot take more than 2 bottles...
WHY?
Cos.... 
My suitcases are already "bloated!"
Sigh...

  2. I have never made jam. It seems so complicated, I am sure I would fail at it. The color is very pretty and jewel-like!

    1. The juice came from the fresh pomegranate tree here behind the house.. needs a lot of work, cleaning, squeezing the juice out from the fruits... :)

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
