Check consistency of stewing fruit, when fruit is thick enough to stick on the spoon, stir in lemon juice and allow to steam until consistency is thick enough to your taste.

Turn off the heat and allow to cool overnight.

If you feel it still too light, put it back to steam some more until you get the right consistency.

Jam ready to eat

I love chunky jam.

Remember to transfer jam into air tight jar when jam is cold.
