The versatile nature of jam is what makes it an important part of our pantry! Spread the jam on bread, paratha or roti and you shall get a quick snack, or top it over a cake/pudding and you shall get a dessert. Name a dish and you can spruce it up with a dollop of jam! The fruity and sweet flavours make it so loved among kids and grown-ups alike. While we are used to buying jams from the stores, you would agree that freshness lacks in the store-bought jams, making them not so appetising. Wouldn’t it be just wonderful if you could make jam at home?! Now you can! Using pineapples, raw mangos, mausambi and more fruits, you can easily whip fresh jams at home.
