Apparently jam on toast is the breakfast choice for a lot of professional sportspeople – so after an hours’ brit mil fit class in Admiral’s Park, or before Rich goes on a 50mile cycle what could be better then some home made jam for our toast?
I made some ‘lavender sugar’ a couple of weeks ago but putting a couple of lavender flower heads into a bag of jam sugar – I’m not sure if this is the best way to do it, but you can smell the lavender when you stick your nose in.
After removing the stones from the plums (I used a punnet) and chopping into cubes, I warmed them in a pan with an equal weight of the lavender jam sugar and the juice of 1 lime. Once the sugar melted, I turned up the heat and boiled vigorously for 4 minutes. After a quick setting test, and 2 more minutes of boiling, my jam was ready.
I poured into sterilised warm jars and enjoyed this morning 🙂
