Blackberry, cranberry, strawberry, blueberry and raspberry apple jam.
This is my second attempt at making jam. I was quite disappointed with the results of my first attempt and this one seems to have come out really nice this time around which is exciting.
Here is the recipe:
500g berries or stone fruit of your choice 2 green apples, cored and sliced very thinly 1/2 cup apple juice or water 1/3 cup lemon juice 3 cups white sugar
Putting it together:
Place all the ingredients into a saucepan. Stir over a low heat until sugar has dissolved and mixture is boiling. Continue to boil for 20 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and stand for 10 minutes.
Spoon hot jam into hot sterilised jars. Seal and leave to cool. Store in a cool dry place.
I’ve been baking since this morning. I thought I might share some photos of my finished products here. This one is a ‘healthy carrot cake’, taken from my favourite foodie blog, Green Kitchen Stories. This was made with banana & date cream, fresh carrot, raisins, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, fresh coconut flakes and a whole lot of love. The frosting is made of creamed cheese whipped with honey, lime juice and topped with lime zest and hazelnuts. I’m really happy with how it looks. Looking forward to tasting it!
