I recently came up with an amazing recipe for homemade jam. Using fruits in season… I put in nectarine, pineapple, organic raw sugar, coconut extract and fresh lime juice. I have named it Mojito Jam and this is no ordinary jam! Here is the recipe and instructions below-
Sliced Nectarines 1 Lb
Diced Pineapple 2 Cups
Raw Sugar 4 Tbs
Fresh Lime Juice 4 Tbs
Coconut Extract 1 Tsp
Water 4 Tbs
1) Place all ingredients in a large stock pot over very low heat for about 45 minutes, stirring often.
2) Remove from heat and let cool.
3) Portion into a mason jar of whatever size you like, and seal!
Enjoy in the morning (or anytime!) with whole wheat toast and vegan butter; it’s a great jam for summertime and an awesome gift for friends and family too!
