How to test if the jam is ready?
You can test if your jam is ready by placing a small saucer or plate in the freezer for 5-10 minutes (it needs to be cold to touch). Once you boil the mixture and it starts to thicken up and you think it might be ready, spoon a little of the hot conserve onto the cold saucer and return to the freezer for 2 minutes. Take out of the freezer and run your finger through it. If it’s ready, it will wrinkle up. This means it is ready to take off the heat and pour into a jar. If this doesn’t happen, don't worry! Just boil the mixture for another 5 minutes or so, and keep testing until it does!
