How to make Pineapple and Mango Jam....



Seriously! Have you ever tried Pineapple Jam or better yet, Pineapple and Mango Jam? I hope I'm not the only one who hadn't, because my gosh, it is crazy good! 

I've been staring at about 8 empty jam jars in my cupboard that I have managed to collect over some time. I've always imagined that making jam would be such a hard, complicated thing to do. Turns out, it's SO easy! So with my obsession for pineapple and mango at the moment, I decided I would try and make some sweet tasting jam.

Now this recipe comes with a WARNING ... 

Do NOT make this jam with your little ones around! Why? Well, because all you will hear is "Mum can I have some?, Mum can I have some?" over and over! Hahaha even the one year old was standing at my feet saying "Ta, Ta, Ta"! 



So here's what you're going to need for...... 

PINEAPPLE AND MANGO JAM

1 Fresh Pineapple
2 Mangoes
2 Limes (Or 1/4 cup lemon juice from a bottle)
2 Cups Jam Sugar (you could probably just use Caster Sugar)
1 Cup Water

OR just PINEAPPLE JAM


1 Fresh Pineapple

2 Limes 
2 Cups Jam Sugar
1 Cup Water

Now what to do with it all...


Cut away all the outside skin from the pineapple and core it. Using a grater, grate all the pineapple into a large heat proof pot. 
Slice up the mangoes getting as much fruit as possible and add to the pineapple.
Now add the water (depending on how juicy your fruit combo is, you may not want to add all the water). 
Set the pot on a low-medium heat for 30 minutes. 
Add the sugar and juice of two limes. 
Stir well, and simmer on a low-medium heat and cook for 60mins, stirring occasionally so the fruit does not catch on the bottom of the pot. 
After the 60 minutes test the thickness of your jam by putting a teaspoon full on a small plate with a little water. If it is still quite runny then let it cook for another 10 minutes, checking regularly. 
Using an electric stick blender, carefully blend the jam so it is less chunky. This will also help to thicken the jam. 
Allow to cool to room temperature and then transfer into clean dry containers with a tight fitting lid. 

This jam will store in the fridge for up to 3 months.

Enjoy this beautifully sweet tasting jam on your morning toast, pancakes or even use it as a glaze for roast meats.

I decided I would give this jam as gifts to some of my family and friends for Christmas. So I made these cute little Pineapple pom-poms to complete this delicious package. (Taking inspirations form my last post 'Pom-pom Christmas Stocking'). If you're interested to learn how to make a pineapple pom-pom leave me a comment below and I'll do a quick how to on the blog.

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).


Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together).
