‘Putting Up’ event (Jams & Preserves) – 21 May

Posted on: 26th Apr 2008

This is my entry for ‘Putting Up’ event hosted this month by lovely Rosie of Rosie Bakes A ‘Peace’ of Cake and started by Pixie of You Say Tomahto, I Say Tomayto.

Closing date for this event is 21 of May so if you want to participate visit Rosie’s website for details.

Tamarind Jam

INGREDIENTS

500g sweet tamarind (regular tamarind is better if like more sour flavour)
6 cups water or a little bit more
1½ cup white or golden caster sugar

METHOD

Peel tamarind, place in a pot over low/medium fire, add water and sugar and cook for about an hour and half. Add a little bit more water if needed. Optionally press through the strainer to remove seeds, then place in the jars and close immediately. I did not remove seeds, we like to suck on them :)

Make about 2-3 medium jars of jam.

  • To make sure that there is no air in the jar you may also pour over the top a little bit of rectified spirit, set it on fire and close the lid while the spirit is still burning (Polish way).

  5. Thank you for all comments :)

    Antonia – my family like to eat it itself ;) or with a slice of buttered toast.

  6. Have never thought of having tamarind as a jam – clever! But seeing as I’ve never before attempted jam I may have to come over to your house with my toast to share a jar ;-)

  7. Jeanne, no problem, next time I will make tamarind jam I will let you know, you can come even without the toast, hehe ;)

  8. Just wanted to say thank you again for your entry and to let you know the event is now up and posted.
