No-Cook Cornelian Cherry Jam

Of all the compotes and jams, I would say that only those with cornelian cherry are for me in a special place, I am never bored by their special aroma and taste.

Normally they do not taste sweet, they are sour, aromatic and they have an astringent taste - besides the fact that they are special in compote and jams, they have a lot of healing properties - immunostimulatory, antipyretic, diuretic, digestive, and so on Mothers write on forums that the antipyretic effect is really remarkable, the fever decreases visibly after a few teaspoons of syrup or cornelian cherry paste.

I also said this year to test, first of all, the raw version, uncooked, preserved with sugar and kept in the refrigerator cornelian cherry jam. I will give them to the children during the year, in addition to some porridge or yogurt, let's see ... it tastes great anyway and you won't be sorry for such a reserve.

Step by step


Normally this is how the horns look, they are small and quite firm to the touch. From these I made compote from here, I put it raw in the freezer and I boiled an extra-super-mega good jam - the recipe follows :)

They have seeds that are not easy to remove, and you can see below how to solve this.


This year I was lucky enough to find bigger horns, so the process of cleaning the seeds was faster. But it's not serious with the little ones, I guarantee it's worth it :)

So, the horns are washed and drained well.


Put a few beans on a bottom and press them well with a glass.


That's about it.


Notice that the seeds are very easy to clean after this procedure.


And patiently forward, so clean all the horns of the seeds.


Pass them well in a food processor or blender.


Weigh the resulting amount of puree and add twice the amount of sugar.

So if you have 400g of mashed corn, put 800g of sugar.


Mix well and put in clean and dry jars.


Store in a cool cellar or refrigerator. This mixture is very fragrant and children will definitely like the taste.

Good appetite!
