One of the favorite canned winter foods is homemade jam. It can be done perfectly even in modern kitchens in urban conditions. Only quality fruit, sugar and some free time are required. One factor is of particular importance in this endeavor and that is:
How much sugar is added to homemade jam?
Many cooks continue to adhere to the established ratio of 1:1 or kilogram of fruit - kilogram of sugar. Classic proportions, which you won't go wrong with. But that's not the only option.
You can adjust the amount according to the sweetness of the fruit. If you think they are too sweet, you can reduce the amount of sugar.
Another criterion is in the desired consistency. The more sugar you add, the more syrup the fruit will release. If you want a thicker jam, you will need to reduce the amount of added sugar.
In case your health condition does not allow the consumption of sugar or you have decided to limit yourself from it, there are many successful recipes for sugar-free homemade jam.
