in the space of a week i have made a few jars of pineapple jam and tomorrow if all goes to plan there will also be a few jars of banana jam.
unfortunately the batch of pineapple jam i made in the middle of the week turned out too sweet and even after simmering away longer that usual the sweetness remained. not a bad thing for a ham glaze as was intended if the jam had been made in time for christmas, but we are all hammed out at the moment.
one recipient of the jam didn’t mind the sweetness because she used the jam to fold into cream for a cake filling. bowb suggested glazing a chicken with it, and it sounds like a delicious idea. with the one jar remaining i might try simmering it with some lemon zest before serving it with waffles for tomorrow’s breakfast.
