Summers are the best time to make jams and preserves. This year home chefs are adding twists to this familiar spread
The best way to spend your weekends this summer is by making jams. No, it’s not an arduous task for the matronly, says food blogger Nandita Iyer in her blog. “These jams don’t take more than 30-45 minutes each, including fruit chopping time, especially because we’re making only a small quantity at a time," writes Iyer who, in the past month, has made batches of strawberry and balsamic, fresh figs with vanilla pods, cider vinegar and black pepper. “Availability of fresh fruits is a big reason. Also, fruits that have a short season in India, like strawberries and fresh figs, it’s nice to preserve them as jams," she adds.
