Beetroot Jam

Never i realized that its very easy to make jams at home until i tried this beets jam..its really simply easy also i was happy of my preparation..i bought some fresh beets, finely i prepared them as jam..personally i would like say that this jam is really a delish...i loved them with baguettes n with hot chocolate..


3nos Fresh Beetroots
1cup Sugar
1tbsp Lemon juice

Peel the skin of the beetroots, pressure cook them without water upto 5 hisses...keep aside n let them cool..
Grind them as fine paste in a blender r food processor..take a heavy bottomed vessel, add the sugar, grounded beets paste n bring them to boil...now put the flame in simmer, close the vessel with lid, stir them occasionally...


While opening the lid, take away the vessel from the flame n stir them, else they may splutter...keep on checking n stirring occasionally until they get thickens..add the lemon juice to the jam n put off the stove...keep aside n let them..

Conserve them in a air tightened box n arrange them in fridge after a day..serve them with bread slices, even with idlies r with dosas..

I made this jam yesterday and it tastes good. It's really a innovative idea Priya, but I doubt if you can cook your beets in a pressure cooker WITHOUT any water?!!! It seems like a crazy idea to expect a pressure cooker to build up steam and hiss without any water inside...and its equally a bad one to try as it could be dangerous.

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

Sujatha, thanks for ur question, without water means its doesnt mean that u shouldnt add water in pressure cooker, u need to add water in the pressure cooker but no need to add water to the beets as we usually cook them in a vessel thats suits prefectly in a pressure cooker, if u dont add water to pressure cooker its quite dangerous..I didnt mean so..Hope i cleared ur doubt..

Sujatha said... Reply To This Comment

Yes! you surely did clear my doubt. Thanks for the reply Priya.
