When preparing blanks for the winter, the question often arises: hot or cold, you need to pour the jam into jars. The fact is that there is no definite answer. You need to rely on the features of cooking, on the composition and ingredients. Only then can you choose the right way to distribute the dessert in containers. The shelf life of the treat will depend on the correctness of the decision.
Can hot jam be poured into jars?
Some recipes require the treat to be hot when placed in containers. Among these cooking methods:
- Cooking "Pyatiminutka". Its name comes from the brevity of the cooking method. Since the dessert has not lost its useful properties during a short cooking, it is recommended to close it in containers while hot. However, the shelf life of such a product is not long - up to 9 months.
- A dessert that did not use a lot of sand when cooking. By reducing glucose, the calorie content of the product is reduced. Moreover, this option is recommended for baby food, because milk teeth are often prone to caries due to sweets. The delicacy can be stored for 10 months, but if it is cooled, then the period is reduced to six months.
Can I roll the jam cold?
After preparing the dessert according to certain recipes, it must be cooled and poured into cold cans. Chilling prior to dispensing is recommended for the following sweet preforms:
- According to my grandmother's recipe. This method was used several centuries ago. You need to keep the pan with berry slurry on fire until it thickens. To check the readiness, you need to drop the jam from a teaspoon onto a plate or a saucepan lid. If the liquid spreads, then the dessert is not thick enough yet. When ready, the cooled sweet mass is poured into cans without rolling them up with lids. The thicker the resulting product, the longer its shelf life.
- Mashed berries with the addition of sand. This method also does not require hot liquid spillage. This recipe is especially popular with young housewives. It is convenient in an apartment, because a woman does not need a large container for cooking, as well as a lot of space for cooling and distributing the product in containers. This jam is stored for up to a year.
How to properly pour jam into jars?
Before and after making homemade delicacies, certain actions are carried out that will allow you to preserve it for a long time:
- Before pouring hot or cold jam, you must carefully process the jars. If they are not sterilized, the dessert will go bad quickly.
- Containers and spoons must be wiped dry.
- Some recipes require closure, and some require parchment and tourniquet to close the neck. This must also be taken into account when harvesting fruits and berries.
- Store in a place where there are no pressure and temperature drops, otherwise cracks will appear on the glass.
- To know how long you can leave the dessert in the cellar, you need to stick a sticker on the jar with the date of preparation and with the estimated day when the shelf life is coming to an end.
Using berries and fruits to prepare blanks is a great way to pamper your household with sweets in the winter.
Only with the correct placement of the blanks in the jars, as well as observing the storage rules, can a large selection of healthy desserts be provided on cold evenings and with colds.
