Apple Gooseberry Jam – Healthy Jam

A fruity delight that smoothly spreads on the toasted bread. This apple gooseberry jam is easy to make and preservative free.

Apple Gooseberry Jam is a healthy combination of apple and gooseberry. Gooseberry which is also known as Amla. It’s a potent source of Vitamin C and also contains iron and calcium.

Pectin is a naturally occurring substance that makes jellies gel and gives jams their spread consistency. Apples contain a particularly high amount of pectin which helps jam to set. Apple pectin is available in the skin and pulp of fresh apples.

I also added one small beetroot for giving perfect red color and this makes jam even more healthy.
