Homemade Jelly Recipe Using a Breadmaker – ingredients include strawberries, sugar, powdered fruit pectin and lemon juice.
How to use your breadmaker for more than bread and pizza crust – make your own jams and jellies
I am not a big fan of canning, but I do love finding as many uses as possible for my breadmaker. The latest is homemade jam – a canning favorite.
I don’t know what it’s like to make homemade strawberry jelly otherwise, but I can say it’s quite easy when using the breadmaker. Honestly, you can’t screw it up with such a simple recipe.
If you don’t have a jelly recipe in your breadmaker recipe book, here’s what I used:
Homemade Jelly Recipe Using a Breadmaker Ingredients
- 6 cups strawberries, capped, and cut into small pieces (appro. 2 lbs. fresh)
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 3 tablespoons powdered fruit pectin
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Homemade Jelly Recipe Using a Breadmaker Directions
Place all ingredients in pan. The strawberries chunks will not shrink or “melt” down so however big the pieces are, is how chunky the preserves will be. Stir all ingredients until well mixed. Start breadmaker using the Jam cycle. After the cycle has finished, allow the jelly to cool about 1 hour before tranferring into storage containers. This will help it gel up. Store in refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or in freezer for 1 year. Makes 4 cups of preserves.
For this recipe, we used a Hamilton Beach Breadmaker.
