Making goldenberry jam at home is an excellent way to take advantage of the fruits' nutritional value. These South American sun-colored berries 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.

  1. Soak the goldenberries in water overnight.
  2. The next day, transfer the berries to a blender, reserving half of the liquid. Blend the fruits until pureed.(3 minutes)
  3. Pour the mixture into a pot and add the lemon juice and the agave syrup.(1 minute)
  4. Add the pectin to the reserved liquid and mix well.(1 minute)
  5. Once dissolved, add it to the fruity mixture and stir well.(1 minute)
  6. 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)
  7. 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)
