Make jam base:
- In a large pot, combine the sorrel juice, lemon juice, and sugar.
- Stir the mixture over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
Bring to a boil:
- Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a rolling boil, stirring constantly.
Boil and skim:
- Allow the jam to boil for 20-30 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking.
- Skim off any foam that forms on the surface.
- To check the consistency, place a small amount of the jam on a cold plate. Let it sit for a moment, then push it with your fingertip. If it wrinkles, the jam is ready.
- Once the jam reaches the desired consistency, remove it from heat.
- Ladle the hot jam into sterilised jars, leaving about 1/4 inch headspace.
- Wipe the rims of the jars with a clean, damp cloth to ensure a proper seal.
- Place sterilised lids on the jars and screw on the bands.
Cool and store:
- Allow the jars to cool completely before storing them in a cool, dark place.
