50 g fresh ginger
2 tbsp Siucra Light Golden Brown Sugar
270 g Siucra Jam Sugar
1 dl 100ml water
Wash the limes and lemon. Peel them. Cut out the soft fruit, but remove all the white pith, and cut into small pieces.
Peel and grate the ginger.
Place the pieces of fruit, zest and ginger in a saucepan, add water and bring to the boil.
Fold in the brown sugar and jam sugar. Stir while simmering for 5-10. Do a jam test to check the consistency is right.
Pour the jam into sterilised jars. Seal and store in a cool place.
Is your jam/marmalade ready?
How do you check whether jam and marmalade have the right consistency? Place a dish in the fridge when you begin boiling jam or marmalade. Pour a little jam or marmalade into the dish and place it in the fridge again until it has cooled. Then drag a spoon through the jam or marmalade. If the track made by the spoon doesn't close in on itself, the jam/marmalade is ready.
Blueberries – the best berry in the forest
Blueberries are definitely the best berry in the forest. Blueberry season tends to start in July and can extend into autumn.
One of the last fruits of summer is the apple – delicious, juicy and healthy. And you can use it in so many ways.
Jams and Marmalades
It is easy and fun to make your own jam and marmalade. The sugar enhances the flavour of the fruit you are using and ensures a longer shelf-life for your masterpiece.
Mmm! What could be better than a rich, sumptuous chocolate cake to lift the spirits – either as an indulgent treat or to round off a meal.
