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... :)

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
