I've found out the hard way that cooking jam a long time ruins both colour and flavour, especially flavour. The shortest possible time cooking allows the fruit to keep its zingy flavour. Otherwise you get something like soggy, flavourless toffee.
Best thing to make cooking short is keep the fruit at the requisite 105 degrees for the shortest time poss, and use heaps of pectin. Adding lemon zest and the syrup from some pre-boiled lemon seeds is the perfect way to get your jam to set without having to boil all the water off it [to death]. Collecting lemon seeds and pulp left over from recipes is great when you have jam to make- just grab it out of the freezer and boil it and there's your extra pectin.

Mangosteen....my favourite fruit!! I can eat load of loads of them! I've never tried to make any jam out of them though..maybe because, they were all eaten up before I can do anything... Unfortunately, here in France, they're not easy to find or if so, shamingly expensive!!!



cool thanks.

Hi Zach! Thanks :) Yes, you can buy mangosteen jam. I am not quite sure where to find some in the US, but you might try asking around in the Filipino groceries...

I read in Food and Wine magazine that the FDA have approved import of mangosteen into the U.S. from thailand, Hope they are as good as the one from the Philippines.

Hi Poch! Pineapple jam sounds great...maybe I'll try that too :) My father's side of the family is hypoglycemic and they have the biggest sweettooths (sweetteeth) ever! I guess we can never underestimate the siren song of sugar :)

2006-12-13T16:43:00.000+08:00

Have my own jam memory. Lola used to make loads of pineapple jam. She also used to eat panucha by itself. I don't ever remember running out of panucha. And she was diabetic. How's that for living on the edge. Tee hee.

Hi Knittymommy! Thanks! Wow...I'd love to try a Jersey peach...sounds fantastic :) Thanks for all the bloglines info! I am signing up and in the process of adding a load of blogs...thanks for sharing this, imagine all this time I have been blogging I didn't know about it! I must admit I am a bit lost when it comes to the technical side of blogging...Will pass on the greetings to C! :)

Hi Angelika! Mangosteen is really delicious. If you follow my links to Santos' and Marketman's posts about the fruit you will get an idea as to their yumminess and magic :) It's great to be able to go back to the traditional way of doing things, at the same time still have so many new and interesting things to try! :)

Hi Brilynn! Thanks :)

Hi Midge! I'm so glad it turned out well for you too :) And home made brioche....oh wow! YUM!

2006-12-11T08:24:00.000+08:00

Hi, Joey! I just tried making your mangosteen jam recipe over the weekend and the results were just superb.

We tried them out on homemade brioche - heavenly!!!

2006-12-10T07:14:00.000+08:00

That looks excellent! I wish I could find someone to make mangosteen jam for me!

2006-12-10T05:14:00.000+08:00

Joey, I love the sound of this post. Mangosteen ! I have never heard about this fruit before nor have I eaten it so far.

You are perfectly right. There are ways of cooking and combinations which are very much fashionable at a certain time, but there are old and oh so tradional ways which are unbeatable - like making jam. Thanks for sharing - at least your thoughts !;-)

Much love, angelika

2006-12-06T23:18:00.000+08:00

Congratulations on your jam. I have always wanted to experiment with that. New Jersey, believe it or not, is famous for its fresh produce. Despite it's very industrial exterior, NJ has beautiful agricultural land of orchards and plantations. The Jersey Peach is certainly to die for. Maybe next peach season, I will attempt to make some jam. You guys really inspire me.

BTW, here is a copy of my reply to your post re: Bloglines:

Hi Nens! Come over and try some :) Home made mango jam is great...my dad got his recipe my abuelita, it's the jam she puts in the bread pudding :)

Hi Paz! You can definitely have a taste! Just let me know when you're in my neighborhood :)

Hi Veron! Yes, definitely have some next time you are here...when they are in season they are wonderful! There is just something about tropical fruits...

2006-12-06T05:20:00.000+08:00

My favorite fruit is mangosteen and mango too! I haven't had mangosteen in ages too, they only have them frozen here in the U.S. and so tiny.... I'll remember to go home to the Philippines when it is in season.



Awesome! I'd love to taste your jam!Paz

2006-12-05T11:09:00.000+08:00

2006-12-05T08:21:00.000+08:00

That looks great, Jo!! You have to let me try it. :) You are inspiring me to make some of my own. Maybe some guava and mango jam. I've never tried mangosteen jam before.

Hi there big city deserter! I see you are a big fan of jam...hooray! :)

Hi Ivonne! Thanks :) I on the other hand and wishing for some respite from the heat as November/December this year is not as cool as it should be...

Hi Tanna! Sugar definitely doesn't hurt...heehee :) Am enjoying some right now with my yogurt :)

Hi Marketman! Thanks! :) I will definitely try 15 minutes more next time and see where that takes me...it may also make it a bit less sweet? Thanks again for all the inspiration! :)

Hi Shelly! Me too! I never know what I will be in the mood for so I need a couple of jars open and on standby :) My plates are very flattered that you thought them Kate Spade but they are actually a brand called Multiple Choice which comes in all sorts of cute designs that you can mix and match :)

Hi Ari! Yes, home made jam and home made bread (the bread in this post is home made too) :) Mangosteen is super delicious! Thanks for the link!

2006-12-04T04:29:00.000+08:00

I agree with you, homemade jam is the best, seasonal memories in a bottle. :)

I'd never heard of mangosteen before, now I have, and now I must link you.

2006-12-03T12:20:00.000+08:00

That looks wonderful! I am a jam NUT and at last count I think I had 6 open jars in the fridge. I like to mix it up! ;)

And I LOVE your plate! It looks like one of the Kate Spade plates?
