Apple + Kiwi Jam

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Sun, 17 Jul 2016 16:50:01 -0400

Just made this:

 1.9 kg Fuji apples (2kg before decoring)
 0.7 kg Kiwi (1kg before peeling)
 2 kg Brown sugar
 Juice of 2 lemons
 3 tsp Vanilla flavouring
 200 ml Water

Peel the kiwis as shown on youtube (with a spoon) and quarter.
Quarter the apples, cut out the core, and quarter again.

Everything in a pan.  I added the water only to avoid any burning at
the start.

Boil for ~2.5 hours.

At ~2 hours, the fruit hadn't broken down enough (and was making it
difficult to stir with what I guess is local superheating).  So I took
the pan from the heat and blended the fruit with a hand blender.  This
wasn't as difficult as I expected - just don't turn the blender on
until the blade is under the liquid.

Initial test suggests that it's quite sweet and otherwise rather
bland.  But it's winter...

Produced just over 3kg of (dark) jam.

The texture is more jelly-like than I expected (apple jelly I guess).
But with a rough feel - perhaps from the skins or the kiwi.

The taste is fairly subtle, but the kiwi are present.  Not sure what
happened to the vanilla - perhaps better to add at the end?

Next time, I would add at least more cinammon.  Perhaps cumin or
cardamon too?

Quite bland for a jam.  Was surpisingly good with a burger.
