Grape and Rosemary Jam – perfect for Autumn!
April 13, 2010 in Sweet treats
Sweet and fruity with bits of grape and a suttle hint of Rosemary. Yummy! Delicious with Brie, Camembert, Blue cheese, Goats, even Pecorino on freshly baked Health bread or ciabatta!
Had lots of grapes in the fridge and Rosemary in the garden and thought, “Let’s give it a bash!”
Makes +- 300 ml
You will need:
500 g seedless red grapes
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
3 sprigs of Rosmary
Juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon
Place grapes, sugar, water and rosmary into a heavy based pot and heat gently until all the sugar dissolves.
Bring to the boil and simmer for 35- 40 minutes until reduced and thicker in consistency. Stir and squash the grapes all the while.
To check if it is ready, place a teaspoon full onto a plate and run your finger through it. The syrup should stay apart.
Stir in the juice and lemon zest and pour into a sterilized jar. Seal. Eat after 2 days(allows it to set and to develop the flavour).
Last up to 4 weeks in the fridge.
Excuse the flash – was dark in the kitchen!
2 days later. Success.
My gift to you!
