Cooking carrot jam:

Step 1: prepare the carrots.

Then put them in a pan, add water and simmer over low heat until completely softened. about 15-20 minutes.

Step 2: prepare the lemon juice.

We wash the lemons under a stream of running water, cut it in half with a knife on a cutting board. Using a juicer or hands, squeeze the juice from a lemon into a glass.

Step 3: cook the carrot jam.
