Benefit Of Fruit Rack
Fruit racks are inexpensive and allow for lots of fruit to be stored. These racks can easily be purchased or made from a simple home project. You can start with a small one that will be sufficient for jam making or a large rack that will hold plenty of fruit for your jam making needs.
There are several ways to begin jamming. The simplest way is to select a fruit and use a fruit rack. Begin by picking fruit and wrap it in cheesecloth. Gently pull the string out of the fruit.
Then use this piece of fruit as a template. Use your index finger and punch a hole in the middle of the fruit. Next insert the handle of a small wooden spoon into the hole. Pour the water into the wooden spoon and squirt it up through the hole. Allow the steam to evaporate so it can rise to the top of the fruit.
Tojar your jam, simply fill the spoon with water. Insert a piece of pin into the hole you made earlier. Carefully pour in the water into the pin and hold it up to the top of the fruit. Once the water reaches the top of the fruit, snap the pin in place. Add the pins to the jar, shaking the fruit rack to mix in the pin.
Place the rack on the counter and wait for it to dry. It should only take a few hours. When it is dry, remove the rack from the surface it was in and cut it off. You will then need to replace the pin in the hole you made earlier.
When all the jams are ready, remove the rack from the surface and slice the fruit’s seeds, fruit and all. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the ingredients together well and you are ready to put the berries into jars.
You may find that some of the berries are firmer than others and you may need to adjust the amount of liquid used in the mixture to get them all in. To get a balanced mixture you will need to add a little bit of water, just enough to make the jam thick. You will also need to make sure to stir the mixture very well before you fill the jars.
Jams should last for many months. Store the fruit rack in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. If you want to make the jam immediately, remove the rack and wash the fruits in running water. A quick rinse under running water will clean and remove the fruit from the jars.
Using fresh fruit and a fruit rack is a delicious and healthy way to make jam. You can make a delicious homemade strawberry jam, jam with mangoes, apples, pears, bananas and even nuts. Fruit Rack Covers are made of a thick fabric material that will keep the fruit fresh and it is easy to store in your pantry or refrigerator, in small amounts.
