Jam – That’s good!

Who loves a bit of Jam? I do but I find the traditional recipe just a bit too sweet so I like to add less sugar. I like the latest idea of adding chia seeds to thicken it so you can use less sugar. It is just so easy to make Jam & chutneys in the Thermomix, it does the cooking & stirring for you. It is not recommended to do a double batch because it could boil over. Always take out the MC from the Thermomix lid & place the simmering basket on top to let out some moisture & catch any splatters.

Here we have the traditional raspberry jam made in the Thermomix with some rhubarb from the garden & a splash of rosewater – the recipe is coming soon!! Perfect to go with my scone recipe.
