North Fife Fruit Jam
Fruits wild and cultivated are in profusion this year in north fife. The weather was particularly warm at blossom time and we can now reap the benefits.
If you have a taste for fruit jam preserves, then have a shot at this recipe, you will love it. Enjoy.
North Fife Fruit Jam.
1 Kilo of Plums, halved and stoned,
500 grams Strawberries, halved,
500 grams of Pears, diced,
2 Kilos of preserving sugar (contains Pectin),
1 cinnamon stick.
Soak fruit overnight with sugar and cinnamon stick. Next day bring to a rapid boil and continue for at least 3 minutes or until setting point is reached. Remove cinnamon stick before putting into sterile jars.
A tip: Screw lids on straight away and place upside down to cool. There is no need for paper covers, a partial vacuum is formed and the jam will be mould free.
