A few years back, Hayden and I had a yard that could support the garden we desired, and we began to grow vegetables. With said grown vegetables, we would make our own lavish meal enhancing sidekicks. We grew pickles and dill for some epically amazing dill pickles, tomatoes and coriander (cilantro) and chillies to make the freshest salsa you could ever imagine. We made dips and dressings, jams and chutneys - something's grown and some bought (but only where our fertile green thumbs fell short). This process was immensely rewarding and is now - from lack of grounds to cultivate - overwhelmingly missed. So when a colleague from work, who had seen my blog, offered up a bounty home grown of Kiwi fruit for the making - I snatched up the generosity of free and set my brain into Kiwi creation overdrive. And this folks, is what I came up with...
Kiwi Lime Jam:
Scoop out 24 Kiwi's and zest up two limes. Chuck these into a pot on medium/low for thirty minutes all together.
After about ten minutes of the cooking process throw in 1/2 a cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of Citrus Pectin to aid in the thickening. Continue cooking for the last 20. I found that there were some chunky bits hanging out so I gave it a quick blitz with the hand wand and then added in 3 tablespoons of lime juice right at the end.
Dump your jam into clean jars - tighten the lids and place into a boiling bath for 10 minutes (Have the water level come to a bit under the lids). Once cooled the lids will suck in a be totally sealed.
