Sometimes it is a lot of fun to try something new. I had a chance to get kiwi, pineapple and limes from our local produce wholesalers and I jumped at the chance to try some Pineapple Kiwi Jam. It has a twist of lime in it as well, so I used all of the things and the jam came out great!
I've gotten pretty brave about trying new combinations of jam over the years. You have to be careful in order to get a jammy set. But the great thing about jam is pancake syrup and ice cream toppings are what you get when it doesn't gel just right, so it is still a win! Lately, I've been having a lot of success with the set though and I can share a few tips with you.
Jam Setting Tips
Jam is really very easy to make, I love to make it and to enjoy some toast and jam every so often, or in a delicious peanut butter sandwich. Oh! And these jam muffins, SO YUMMY! I hope you will be brave enough to try jam making on your own!
This Pineapple Kiwi Jam was pretty quick to make. My recipe uses 12 kiwi, peeled and chopped. That probably took the longest, but wasn't that bad at all. And, because I have a pineapple peeler, corer, slicer, the pineapple came together in a snap!
Save as much juice as you can from the pineapple to add to the flavor.
I used my lime zester and lime squeezer for the limes of course.
And, to make my jam not quite so chunky, I used an immersion blender.
Okay! Here is the recipe! I hope you enjoy it!
*Keep an eye out! We will soon be publishing an e-book of our favorite and original jam recipes!
