Kaki jam

Winter is closing in. That's the time when the kaki ripen. So today I made delicious jam from kaki and apple.

I used This will give about 3 kg of jam. So make sure to have enough jars ready. Soak them in hot water and sterilize them with some cheap alcohol.

Carefully peel the kaki. They have a very thin but hard peel. This is going to be messy as the fruit easily turn into sludge while being peeled. You'll like it, trust me :-) Collect the peeled fruit in a large pot.

Peel also the apple and cube it. Pre-cook the apple in a sip of water in a small pot until soft.

In the large pot, mash the kaki. Then add the cooked apples. Add a small piece of real vanilla to taste. Cook a the mixture for 10 minutes while stirring constantly.

Blend the mixture into a smooth mash.

Now add the sugar and gellant. Stir gently and cook for another 5 minutes. Then fill into the prepared jars. After closing the lids turn the jars over and let them cool off.

Time to enjoy the remaining hot jam in the pot with your fingers!
