- 3 pcs Plum
- 1 pc Apple
- 1pc Pear
- 125ml Water
- 1 pc Lemon juice
- 1 pc Lemon zest
- ⅔ cup Sugar
- ½ tsp Cinnamon
- ½ tsp Ginger, ground
- Peel the pear and apple and cut it into small dices. Cut the plums the same size but don't peel it. Once all the fruits are cut, put it in a small pot.
- Add the lemon juice, lemon zest and water to the pot and put it over a medium heat. Mix it a little bit until the mixture comes to a boil.
- Once the the liquid has come to a boil, add the sugar, cinnamon and ginger and mix well.
- Keep stirring until the mixture becomes thicker and you can run a spatula through and see the bottom of the pot (watch video for visual representation)
- Once the jam is thick enough, turn the heat off. Using a hand blender, blend everything until smooth, or keep it chunky if you prefer.
- After the jars have been sterilized properly, pour the jam inside and seal it tight. Keep it refrigerated.
- The more you cook the mixture, the thicker the jam will be once it cools down
