autumn colours are so beautiful,
and the brisk air makes everything look even more sharp and clear.
it gives you strenght and lust to DO things|
like trekking, like working in the garden,
like changing (anything, also just a new tablesetting),
and this jam has the colour of Autumn
Persimmon jam with lime and pepper
1,950kg of persimmon (kaki)
550gr of sugar
1 lime (zest and juice)
1 tbsp of mixed pepper grains
clean and peel the persimmon,
put in a plastic or glass bowl, add sugar,pepper grains lime juice and zest
mix well cover with a cloth and let marinate over the night in a cool place.
the next day pour the mixture in a pot add the peeled apples cut in small cubes
and heat up.
when boiling, lower the heat and let cook gently for 40-50min.
pour in clean glasses and close lid.
let cool up-side-down.
store in a cool, dry and dark place.
will conserve uptill 2 years.
it is very, very important that the persimmon are ripe. if not the jam will get a very bitter
taste, and there is no use adding sugar.
the bitterness will remain.
