● 400 g aronia berries
● 350 g sugar
● 150 g water
● 5 whole cloves
● juice of 1/2 lemon
Wash the aronia berries very well and put them in the blender.
Puree to our preferred consistency, depending on whether we want our jam to be chunky.
Next put the puree in the pot, and add the water, sugar and whole cloves.
Put the pot on medium heat and simmer for about 15 minutes until the jam has thickened.
If the jam needs more syrup, add some water and adjust the boiling time accordingly.
Just before turning off the heat add the lemon juice, stir well, remove from the heat and remove the cloves.
To see if the jam has the desired consistency, put some on a saucer and allow to cool.
Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the jam is ready.
Store in glass sterilized jars.
