Winter Jam
« on: June 03, 2016, 12:20:42 am »
Any advice on what jam I can make in winter?
I want to gift two of my friends with a jar and not able to make up my mind what to prepare, any suggestions?

What fruits are in season at the moment Thermilover? Frozen fruit works too.My friends love it when I make Lemon Curd for them. ;)

That's the lemon curd recipe I am using at the moment, amazingly quick and easy and it tastes great too.

Of course, lemon curd doesn't last as long as jam, but that's no problem, once you start eating it you can't stop!

I sometimes make dried apricot jam in the winter months.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Thanks CC, marina n Cookie... I ended up doing CC's lovely Peanut butter bonbons and they taste soooo yumm!!
But will probably still go ahead and prepare some jam as I am running out of strawberry jam I made in summer..

Cookie, can you please share the dried Apricot jam recipe which you make?

I haven't tried this particular recipe Thermilover but it looks pretty good. http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=2642.msg28968#msg28968
