Gooseberry Jam / Amla Jam

In this recipe I have not used any artificial preservatives. I have used jaggery instead of regular white sugar for more flavour and health benefits of jaggery. Jaggery is sweet and has more calorie but it is better than white sugar health wise.

Gooseberry / Amla has a lot of health benefits. It is low in calorie, fat and cholesterol. It is rich in vitamin C and A, manganese and dietary fibre.
