Frozen Raspberries Jam / Pekmez od smrznutih malina

I scored some frozen raspberries on sale and decided to make a quick jam out of them. Admittedly, this jam isn’t one of the budget-friendliest recipes, as a 500 g bag of frozen raspberries yielded only a jar of jam, but it taste a zillion times better than the store-bough stuff, so it is definitely worth it as a treat. Plus, it’s super easy to make.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 1 jar / 2.40 EUR)

500 grams of frozen raspberries (2.00 EUR)

Juice from ½ of a lemon (0.20 EUR)

1 cup sugar (0.20 EUR)

METHOD:

Place raspberries sprinkled with lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a pot on medium heat. Bring to a boil then cook, while stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes, until raspberries break down and thicken. Gradually add in the rest of the sugar, taste to adjust sweetness and cook to desired thickness. Transfer the jam to a clean jar, cool down and store in refrigerator.

Naletila sam na smrznute maline na rasprodaji pa sam odlučila od njih napraviti brzinski pekmez. Ruku na srce, ovaj pekmez baš i nije jedan od najjeftinijih recepata, pošto od 500 g malina dobijete jednu teglicu pekmeza, ali mu je okus milijardu puta bolji od onog kupovnog, pa se definitivno isplati kao poslastica. Osim toga, stvarno ga je jednostavno za napraviti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 teglicu / 18,00 kn)

500 g smrznutih malina (15,00 kn)

Sok od ½ limuna (1,50 kn)

1 šalica šećera (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Stavite kuhati maline pokapane sokom od limuna i sa 2 žlice šećera na umjerenu vatru. Pustite da zavriju pa kuhajte oko 20 minuta uz povremeno miješanje, sve dok se maline ne raspadnu i zgusnu. Postepeno dodajte ostatak šećera, kušajte i prilagodite slatkoću te kuhajte do željene gustoće. Pekmez preselite u čistu teglu i oghladite na sobnu temperaturu prije nego ga stavite u hladnjak na čuvanje.
