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.
