MINI JAM, JAM AND CONFECTIONERY HOME PRODUCTION
Equip a mini business for home production of jam products under the power of any housewife. Home mini line for the production of jam, preserves and jams includes affordable equipment for everyone who receives at least some income. A good microwave and a sealing key is all your mini plant will be equipped with. The main equipment in the home-made dessert industry will be a microwave microwave. Here it performs two functions: sterilization and jam cooking process. Today everyone has the opportunity to buy frozen fruits and berries at any time of the year. You can even buy exotic berries and tropical fruits. Therefore, there will be no problems with the supply of products for processing on equipment. The price of frozen strawberries is $ 2 per kilogram. Sugar is cheaper to buy in bags, especially since it will be consumed very quickly. The cost of a bag of sugar is $ 44, i.e. $ 0.88 / kg. It is cheaper to buy containers in bulk – this is quite affordable. The minimum order for glass jars is 0.5l. with the type of capping “twist” starts from 2000pcs, the price is $ 340 per set, that is $ 0.17 per can. A lid for a twist-type jar will cost 0.04 apiece. From a kilogram of strawberries and a kilogram of sugar we get 3 jars of strawberry dessert with a capacity of 0.5 l. The retail price in the stores of one half-liter jar of strawberry jam is $ 1.5. The benefit is obvious. We spent on processed products: $ 2 + $ 0.88 = $ 2.88. On the container it took us: ($ 0.17 + $ 0.04) X 3 = $ 0.63. In total, expenses amounted to: 3.51. And we earned $ 4.5 from the sold three jars at $ 1.5 per item. Total: $ 4.5 – $ 3.51 = $ 0.99 of net profit. In one day, it is entirely possible for one person to prepare 120 half-liter jars. Of course, the prices shown in the calculations change under the conditions of the summer and winter season. Prices for strawberries and jam are much lower in summer than in winter. You can earn extra income on this. The warranty shelf life of jam is 24 months. When making jam in the summer, it is wise to make a small margin deposit for winter sales. In this way, you can get double net profit. Try to repeat the success of Fraser Doherty. In his school years he was engaged in the home production of fruit desserts. He built a whole business for the production of jams according to grandmother’s recipes. Fraser Doherty at the age of 14 founded the company SuperJam, and in his 16 years, has already earned his first million. At first he sold 12 jars a week to his neighbors. And then he cooked up to 1000 cans per week in the home parental kitchen.
EQUIPPING A MINI PRODUCTION LINE IN HOME
We make exotic jam on home equipment. You can make jam on a variety of kitchen equipment. A list of suitable equipment for homemade jam production:
The modern multicooker and bread maker supports the “jam” function. You simply add all the necessary components and set the settings for the corresponding mode. Complete with equipment is a recipe book, which includes jams. Perhaps the most sophisticated jam recipes cannot be easily cooked in the microwave. But you need to start with a simple one and to start a business it is rational to start production using a microwave. The reasons for the rationality of choice are as follows:
The ratio of price and volume of production.
The ability to sterilize banks for the subsequent conservation of finished products.
When home production begins, it brings income, it’s quite rational to think about purchasing additional equipment to modernize the production line. Then it is better to purchase a slow cooker for the production of complex recipes. But if you already have a bread machine with suitable functions – great, it will harmoniously fit into the production cycle. It is very convenient and fast to cook jam in the microwave. Now you do not need to constantly monitor, stir and fear that the jam will burn. First, let’s get back to strawberry jam. Strawberries (even when frozen) are laid out in a microwave bowl. To the berries you need to squeeze the juice from the floor of the lemon and put the peel from it directly into the bowl. We put in the microwave for 5-6 minutes at 800vat. Add sugar to the hot strawberries, mix well and put in the microwave for 20-25 minutes. Jam thickens and reaches full readiness. Remove the lemon peel from the finished jam. You are using home use equipment. So far, you have not dessert but industrial production at home. You should produce a wide assortment, not a large supply of fruit desserts. A wide range of products can significantly increase sales of jams. Try making unconventional, exotic jams.
