Recipe Tips:

- It is also possible to sterilize glass jars in a multicooker. To do this, pour about 1 liter of water into the appliance bowl, place a steam basket on top and place the container with its neck down. Turn the appliance into steaming mode and sterilize the jars for 5-10 minutes depending on their size.

- Always prepare jam in small jars, so after opening the blanks will not take up much space in the refrigerator.

- When washing cans, I prefer ordinary baking soda, rather than modern dishwashing detergents.
