There are several types of jam jars available, with different closing mechanisms. One of the easiest are the simple screw top lids.

A typical recipe will make between 3 - 5 standard size jam jars.

See jam jars available on Amazon UK.

A big steel saucepan with high sides is the ideal cooking vessel to make jam.
Aluminium pans are not recommended as the acid in the fruit may react with the aluminium.

See large steel saucepans on Amazon UK.

Weighing the fruit and sugar accurately can help considerably to ensure that the resulting jam sets to the right consistency.

See food scales on Amazon UK.

A colander is an essential piece of equipment for washing the fruit prior to cooking.

See colanders on Amazon UK.

A ladle is a fast way of serving the prepared jam into jam jars.

See ladles on Amazon UK.

Wooden spoons are ideal for stirring the jam during the cooking process to ensure the fruit does not stick to the sides and bottom of the pan.

See wooden spoons on Amazon UK.


A masher helps break down the fruit during cooking, releasing the pectin and the juice before the sugar is added.
