Making goldenberry jam at home is an excellent way to take advantage of the fruits' nutritional value. These South American goldenberries are a great source of dietary fiber, which a diet full of has been found to lower bad cholesterol and improve digestion. They are also rich in potassium and vitamin A as well as anti-inflammatory and blood sugar-lowering polyphenols. This sweet and tangy goldenberry jam will deliciously complement desserts, like goldenberry linzertorte, and make for a great breakfast, especially when spread on nutty goldenberry bread or maca bread.
- Soak the goldenberries in water overnight.
- The next day, transfer the berries to a blender, reserving half of the liquid. Blend the fruits until pureed.(3 minutes)
- Pour the mixture into a pot and add the lemon juice and the agave syrup.(1 minute)
- Add the pectin to the reserved liquid and mix well.(1 minute)
- Once dissolved, add it to the fruity mixture and stir well.(1 minute)
- Put the heat on and bring the pot to a boil on medium heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking to the bottom. Let it boil for three minutes and take it off the stove.(5 minutes)
- Transfer the hot jam into a glass jar and set aside to cool down (it will thicken as it cools down). Store in a refrigerator.(1 minute)
