Strawberry Tree Jam

Ingredients
  

  • 1 kg Strawberry Tree Fruits
  • 350 kg Caster Sugar
  • 1 Large Orange (juice and zest)

Instructions
 

  • Rinse your freshly foraged fruits and pop them in a steel pan, along with the zest and juice of your orange. Place a small plate in the freezer- this will come in handy a little later!
  • Cook on a low heat for 10-15 minutes. Stir frequently until the fruit becomes soft and mushy. Don't be afraid to give them a good squish!
  • Grab a sieve and pop in your fruit. Mush it through to create a smooth puree.
  • Pop your puree back in the saucepan, along with your sugar.
  • Place over a medium heat and let it bubble gently, stirring frequently, until you reach the setting point. To test if it's reached setting point drip a little jam on the plate you've placed in the freezer. If it wrinkles when you push your finfger though it, it's ready! If not, keep on cooking it down.
  • Pour your jam into sterilised jars and pop the lids on whilst hot (to create a seal). Enjoy!

Notes

Your finished jars should keep for several months in a cool dark place. Once opened, keep in the fridge.
