Jam JarsThere are many types and sizes 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.

Big saucepanA 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.

See food scales on Amazon UK.
