    Enjoy delicious desserts of figs, plums, pomegranates and blueberries until spring

    The end of summer always smells like the preparation of sweets for the winter, and the preparation of jams is always a pleasure for all the family. While the slightly older ones prepare the ingredients to cook the most wonderful jams, the youngest ones use every opportunity to try this sweet dessert. We decided to help you and prepare recipes that the whole family will enjoy until spring and the appearance of the first sweet fruits.

    Blueberry jam and chia seeds-Megalopreneur


    3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

    2 teaspoons grated lemon zest

    ¼ cups of fresh lemon juice

    3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

    ¼ cups of chia seeds


    In a saucepan, mix the blueberries, lemon zest, lemon juice and honey and cook, stirring occasionally, for about five minutes. Spoon lightly crush half the blueberries to release their juices and continue to cook for another 10 minutes. Make sure the sweetness suits you, then add more honey if it is not sweet enough. Add chia seeds, stir and cook for just a minute. Remove from heat and pour into a jar. Consume the jam within two to three weeks. If you want to leave it for later since it does not contain preservatives, then freeze it and defrost it as needed.

    Plum and ginger jam

    Plum and ginger jam-Megalopreneur


    4 kg of plums

    500 g of fructose

    4 vanilla sugar

    teaspoon ground cardamom

    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    juice of 1 lemon

    white part of the rind of 1 lemon

    100 g of ginger

    100 ml of rum


    Wash the plums, pit them and cut them in half. Peel a squash, grate it and add to the plums. Then add the juice of one lemon, fructose or sugar and vanilla sugar to the pot, mix everything well and let the plums macerate, that is, let them stand in the sugar to separate the liquid from the plum fruits. You can leave them in the fridge overnight, but if you don’t have time, let them stand for at least three hours. Put the pot with the plums on a low heat and let it simmer. When it has boiled, add the cinnamon and cardamom spices and the white part of the lemon zest cut into larger pieces. Let the jam cook on low heat for about an hour and 30 minutes. When cooking, you can, but you don’t have to remove the foam that forms. If the jam cooks lightly, less foam will form. 10 minutes before the end of cooking, add the rum and mix well. Make sure the jam is cooked, if the jam ripples slightly with your finger or spoon, the jam is ready to be poured into the jar. Sterilize the jars in a hot oven, take them out and immediately pour hot jam into them. When you have poured the jam into the jar, pour a spoonful of rum over the surface and close the jar. Wrap in a cloth or a larger towel and let them cool until completely cooled.
