A Tight Jam
Okay, so being in a “tight jam” could apply to almost any movie, but in this case it’s in reference to Rose and Finn’s escape from Canto Bight.
I thought this would be very easy to make, as it’s really just a matter of combining strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a saucepan and boiling it down (while mashing). Once it’s done, carefully pour into a pint jar, let cool, and then seal and refrigerate.
I ended up boiling mine for double the amount of time stated, though, because it never passed their “doneness” test. This test included putting a little bit of the jam on a refrigerated plate, swirling it around, and seeing if it’s sticky or runny. Mine always appeared to be runny during the test, even when I finally gave up and removed it from the stove. At this point, it really did look more than done despite it failing the test.
Because I had boiled the berries for double the amount of time, I had only half the amount of jam than it’s supposed to make and it was thicker than a typical jam.
The flavor was perfect, even though the consistency was a bit off due to me boiling it for too long.
I really thought this would fall into the easy category, but getting an accurate test (or at least understanding the test) on when the jam is done was difficult.
You just need strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. That being said, you’ll also need a pint jar to put your jam into, which could increase your cost if you don’t have one already.
