Tamarillo Jam

One of the best things about this business is eating the fruit. I was never a big fan of Tamarillos until Mel made some into jam. It's delicious, especially on toast with peanut butter. Here is her recipe.


6 plump tamarillos

2 cups water

4 cups Jam Sugar


Cut fruit in half. Place in a large saucepan with the water. Bring to the boil. Remove tamarillo skins and return fruit to water. Simmer for 5 minutes. Mash fruit, add the Sugar and boil again for 10 minutes. Stir frequently and test for setting, then cool slightly.

Pour into sterilised jars and seal.
