● 300 g carambola fruit (peeled)
● 250 g sugar
● 160 g water
● juice of 1/2 lemon
● 1 cinnamon stick
Wash the fruit very well and using a sharp knife, slice down the ribs lengthwise, and carefully remove as much skin as we can so as not to lose too much of the flesh.
Next, cut into pieces and remove the seeds.
Put the star fruit pieces in the blender and puree to our preferred consistency, depending on whether we want our jam to be chunky.
Put the puree in the pot and add the sugar, water, lemon juice and cinnamon stick.
Boil for about 15 minutes on medium heat, until the jam has thickened.
More or less boiling time may be needed, depending on the quantity of our ingredients.
To see if the jam has the desired consistency, put some on a saucer and allow to cool.
Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the jam is ready.
Remove the pot from the heat, allow it to rest and then store in glass sterilized jars.
