Features of the preparation of jelly raspberry jam
Probably, there is no such house where there is no jar of raspberry jam - regular or in the form of jelly. Even the laziest housewives stock up on it for the winter. The fact is that raspberry jam (jelly) is not only a delicious delicacy and an excellent dessert for tea, but also an effective remedy for colds, beriberi and other health problems that arise during the cold season.
At the first stage of making raspberry jam (jelly), it is very important to start processing the berries correctly. Raspberries have a delicate structure and require special treatment. Of course, it is better not to wash it at all. But if the source of origin of raspberries is unknown, it is not clear in what conditions it grew, it is better to process the berries. This must be done quickly and very carefully, under a light, gentle stream of water. Leave the berries on a sieve to drain the water, or place them neatly on a clean, dry towel.
Next, it is important to decide on the choice of a gelling agent necessary for the raspberry jam to thicken well and turn into jelly. There are several options:
- agar agar.
Most often, pectin is used to make thick raspberry jam in the form of jelly. This is a substance of plant origin, which is usually obtained industrially from apples, citrus peels. Therefore, it is ideal for fruit and berry preservation, including raspberry jam in the form of jelly.
In addition, the use of pectin has several advantages:
- well preserves and emphasizes the aroma of berries, fruits;
- helps to preserve the original shape of the fruit, does not contribute to their quickest digestion;
- retains the original color of the berries;
- the shortened cooking time ensures the best preservation of nutrients in the berries.
Pectin is mixed with a small amount of sugar and added to the already boiled raspberry jam. From this point on, it should not be exposed to high temperatures for more than 5 minutes. Further cooking will negate all its gelling properties. Pectin itself is harmless, but in large quantities it can cause unwanted reactions in the body, such as intestinal obstruction, food allergies.
You can also make raspberry jam like jelly with gelatin. In addition to its gel-forming properties, amino acids and minerals bring benefits to humans. Animal gelatin is rich in such substances. It prevents the sugar found in raspberry jam or jelly from crystallizing over time.
