How to Make Your Own Preserves

Prep your fruit: What you need to do to prep your fruit will depend on the type of fruit you’re using for your preserves.

Cook the fruit: Once you’ve prepped the fruit, it’s time to start cooking. Bring the lemon juice and fruit to a simmer over medium heat. Then, slightly mash the fruit, leaving it as chunky as you desire.

Add pectin: Next, sprinkle a bit of pectin over your fruit and stir it in. Increase the heat on the stove to medium/high and constantly stir until the mixture begins to boil.

Add sugar: Add sugar to the fruit and continue stirring until the mixture reaches a roaring boil. Continue to stir for about one minute to activate the pectin.
