For high-quality flower jam, you need flower petals that grow exclusively outside the city. It is better to collect them in the morning, when the dew has already dried, and the sun has not yet entered the zenith. The best weather for collecting flower petals is sunny and clear. Prepare the jam immediately after picking the flowers so that they retain their freshness. First, you should carefully sort out the flower petals, remove damaged, small debris and bugs.
Next, the petals are carefully washed in running water. If you cook jam in a cold way without cooking, then it is recommended to dry the flowers on a clean kitchen towel beforehand.
The cooking process begins with the preparation of sugar syrup, for which it is better to use sugar. The readiness of the syrup is determined simply: a drop of syrup is dropped into a tablespoon. It should keep its shape and not spread. Instead of sugar, you can use natural honey — with it, the jam will turn out more fragrant and will not be candied during long-term storage.
