Mixed Berry Jam With Ginger And Lime

Belonging to The Secret Recipe Club means that once a month I get to read a whole lot of new blogs. Some of them then become regular places to visit and others I might not see again for a while. In May of 2012 I found a recipe for raspberry jam with ginger and chilli on Mangia and I printed the recipe off and left it on my fridge. In my December holidays I worked through my pile of recipes in my to do ‘file’ and this Mixed Berry Jam With Ginger And Lime recipe was one of the first I made. I had bought frozen mixed berries to use for a photograph and decided to adapt this recipe and make the jam with them. Then I could not stop licking the spoon while making it. I like that it made one jar of jam as that means I get to enjoy this flavour and I can experiment with other flavours sooner rather than later.

Do you make your own jams?

  1. No I don’t make jam, and hardly ever eat it, but yours sounds too delicious. 🙂 My mom used to make all her own jam when I was a kid, and we ate it on thick slices of toast. Yummy memories. 😀

  2. I have made marmalade, with varying degrees of success. First lot I thought was too sweet but it got great reviews from recipients. Then I made it to suit me. Groans from same 2 recipients that it wasn’t sweet enough

  3. Love this jam recipe. Am amazed no sugar.. fantastic.. yesterday I made citrus marmalade as the shops are full of oranges and naartjies etc.. It really is delicious!!
