The fourth stage

We close the lid of the pot and put the flame spreader on the flame and put the pot on it, and let the jam cook and get thickened.

We must visit the jam occasionally to remove it at the exact time from the heat.

The fifth stage in making Persian carrot jam

In order to make sure that the jam has reached the desired concentration or not, you can take a little of the nectar of the jam and pour it into a glass of cold water.

If the nectar of the jam settles in cold water and does not disintegrate, it means that the jam is ready.

The sixth stage

But if the nectar has dissolved, it means that you still have to give the jam time to cook and reach the right concentration.

When the jam reaches the desired consistency, we add cardamom, lemon juice, and rose water and mix all the ingredients slowly with a spoon.

The seventh stage

After 2-3 minutes, remove the jam from the heat, keep it aside until it cools down, pour it into the desired jar, put the lid on it, keep it in the refrigerator, and serve this delicious carrot jam for breakfast.

If the jam is cooked at a high temperature, its nectar or syrup thickens very quickly, but the carrot is not cooked completely, which causes the jam to become sugary quickly.
For this reason, the jam should be cooked on low heat, or you can add a spoonful of lemon juice to the jam so it does not become sugary.
