  • Fresh lychees, peeled and deseeded - 500 grams (17.6 ounces)
  • Granulated sugar - 250 grams (8.8 ounces)
  • Lemon juice - 2 tablespoons
  • Water - 100 ml (3.4 ounces)
  • Pectin (optional for thicker consistency) - 1 teaspoon

Detailed Method of Preparation

  1. Begin by finely chopping the peeled and deseeded lychees.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the chopped lychees, sugar, and water. Stir well.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  4. Once boiling, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 30-35 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent sticking.
  5. If using pectin, dissolve it in a tablespoon of water and add to the jam during the last 10 minutes of cooking.
  6. Add the lemon juice and stir well. The lemon juice not only adds flavor but also helps in setting the jam.
  7. To test if the jam is ready, place a small amount on a cold plate. If it gels and wrinkles when pushed, it's done.
  8. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  9. Pour the jam into sterilized jars and seal them. Allow the jam to cool at room temperature before refrigerating.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • Ensure the lychees are ripe for the best flavor.
  • Skim off any foam that forms during cooking for a clearer jam.
  • Adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of the lychees and your preference.
  • Sterilize the jars properly to extend the shelf life of the jam.
