麵包機篇 - 果醬 (BREAD MAKING – Jam)

之前也說過,小編時常利用麵包機做果醬,所以就先分享做果醬的方式吧。

As I mentioned in previous post, I always make jam using bread maker, so now, I will share in the followings :

麵包機做果醬與手工果醬不同,手工果醬其實煮成的時間比較快,但用麵包機卻可以一邊做,自己可以做其他事,2小時後就會通知你已經完成,所以小編比較喜歡用麵包機去做。 不過,用麵包機煮,小編有些心得可分享一下。

It’s quite different to make jam between using bread maker and handmade, it’s taking longer time using bread maker, but you can do other things while making jam, it will automatically stop after 2 hours. Therefore, I prefer to use bread maker and wanna share my experience about this.

買回來的生果清洗後,最好切得越小越好,不然很難煮溶的,就算好像藍莓這些細小的果,也要切成4小份啊。

After you washed the fruit, cut into pieces that as smaller as possible, make it easy to cook, for example, if you cook blueberry jam, the blueberries cut it into 4 small pieces.

煮果醬需要糖,你可以用冰糖或蔗糖,但小編有個方程式,基本上100%可以做到的。 首先,把所切好的果子上磅,看看幾重,把重量除以2.8,就可以得出需要的糖份,但要注意,這個糖份是以白糖份量計算,如用冰糖或蔗糖,就要減5-10g (甜度個人喜歡)。

i.e. 300g果子 : 300g/2.8 =107g白糖。

First, you need sugar, I prefer to use rock sugar or raw sugar, however, there’s a formula that until now still 100% work for me. After cut your fruit, scale it, then divided by 2.8, that’s you can calculated the sugar you need, however, this formula just use as granulated sugar, if you using rock sugar or raw sugar, better deduct 5-10g (depends of your favourite).

e.g. 300g fruit : 300g/2.8=107g (granulated sugar)

跟著就需要檸檬汁,小編會用現成裝檸檬汁,因為酸度高,做出來的果醬濃度比較穩定,最初小編都用新鮮榨檸汁,但尤於每個檸檬也不同,所以有時果膠不足,做出來好像水一樣。 檸檬汁也有方程式,就是把果子重量除以10.5就可以了。

i.e. 300g果子 : 300g/10.5=29g檸檬汁。

Afterwards, you also need lemon juice, for me, I’m using bottle one, because the acidity is higher, so the consistency of the jam is more constant; I have tried to use fresh lemon, however, it’s not enough acid to form the right consistency.  On the other hand, the lemon juice also have to calculate you need, the formula should be the weight of the fruit divided by 10.5.

e.g. 300g fruit : 300g/10.5=29g lemon juice.

最後把所有材料加入容器(記得轉果醬葉),2小時後就完成了。 當完成後,第一時間倒入已消毒的玻璃樽內,蓋好,待涼了就可以放入雪櫃。

Finally, add all ingredients into bread pan (don’t forget to change the kneading blend), it will then automatically finish after 2 hours.  Once it’s finished, put it immediately into a sealed jug, and put it into refrigerator when cold.
