Carrot jam? I didn't know you could make it. It makes sense though as carrots are lovely and sweet.

Yes please Bron. I have a few mangos that were sent to me from Broome (North West Australia) and don't want them to go to waste and my brother tells me their fig tree is laden and will ripen soon.

I used to make French Marmalade, which is basically, Carrot Jam.

I also made Mock Raspberry which is Tomato Jam. My recipe calls for a bottle of raspberry essence. I used to use the Rawleigh's Brand as it was so nice.
Don't think you can get it anymore.  :(
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Marmee I found a recipe of Teninas for lemon curd - guess that's lemon butter.

 http://cravepublishing.com/steamovencooking/category/the-twelve-recipes-of-christmas/

Hi All, I was looking for the Lemon Curd recipe, but it seems it is no longer on the site. Does anyone have Tenina's Lemon Curd / Lemon Butter Recipe??

jennamez,          My Lemon and carrot jam seems to be popular.   It is easy ,  tastes nice and sets well.  It is posted on the Forum.   I make most of my jam in the TMX,  after 40 odd years of making it on the stove.  As a general rule use 3/4 amount of sugar to fruit.  Little or no water,  and you may need to add lemon juice or 'Jamsetta".   Cook on 100 or Varoma temp   Hope this helps.

Jennamez, I have found Tenina's Lemon Curd recipe amongst my many untried recipes, for some reason this one was hand-written.

100g butter
fine zest of 1 lemon
juice of 2 lemons
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
150g castor sugar

Place everything into the bowl.  Chop 5 seconds, speed 7.
Insert butterfly and cook 8 mins/80o/speed 3.

I made a very nice fig jam two weeks ago. Not runny at all and not to sweet.
I dont have the exact measures as i just adjusted the flavor while it cooked.

I started by adding a whole lemon (no peel) and blitzed it. Then the figs and some sugar. Gently blended not to make a complete puré. I think i used varoma for like 45-60 minutes.

Very nice flavor and good texture.

I just made the strawbery jam out of the EDC, (strawberries are cheap here at the moment) I used Jam setting sugar (from coles, brand CSR) I left out the lemon as my daughter does not like it with lemon. Cooked for the same time but on varoma and left the lid tip so only on half way. Has come up fantastic.

Willmac I do that. The same weight of CSR jam sugar and strawberries.  It makes a lovely jam.

Bought a Pineapple that was too tart to eat,  so will make it into jam.
