Mixed Fruit Jam

Bread, butter and jam is a very nostalgic and very simple breakfast. All the ingredients (Bread, butter and Jam) and generally store bought at my place and we just assemble and you have a yummy dish ready.. Now with all the “trying different cuisines and food” aura rounding around me, I try to make all the 3 ingredients at home… Definitely more complicated than buying from the store, but tastes so fresh and so awesome.. I am sure you have heard me say, how rewarding bread baking is.. Now comes the second ingredient which is the Jam. Mixed Fruit Jam is a famous type of jam which is made with a variety of fruits. Since we make it home, we can customize and personalize it. Adjust the sugar, adjust the variety of fruits, add essence if you want, add color if you want… Have fun!!! Now the truth is that I dislike to buy the store bought jam as it almost looks like solidified sugar water!!! But sometimes if I am pressed for time or ingredients, I do have to buy it.. This is my choice for M - Others / Miscellaneous

Blend the fruits separately and add it to a saucepan. Make sure to remove the skin from the grapes. Add pectin, sugar and apple cider vinegar to the saucepan
Cook this on medium heat until it reaches 220 degrees F. It will take at least 45 minutes of medium heat. Alternatively, pour a few drops on a plate, if it spreads easily, then the jam is not ready. When you pour a few drops and it stays firm without moving much, and has a jam like consistency, the jam is ready.
Allow the jam to cool and it will get thicker more. Store in a cool dark place and all opened jam need to be refrigerated. Also use a clean wet free spoon to scoop out the jam.
