● 500 g tamarillo fruit
● 500 g sugar
● 60 g water
● juice of 1 lemon
Put water in a pot to boil and once it is at a rolling boil, add the fruit and leave the fruit in for 2 minutes.
After the 2 minutes, remove the fruit and put them in a bowl with cold water.
Using a sharp knife, slice the end of the fruit and peel.
Slice the fruit in half and using a spoon, carefully remove the seeds.
Put the water, sugar, the fruit and the lemon juice in the pot and boil on medium heat.
After boiling for about 10 minutes, crush the fruit with a potato masher and continue to boil until the jam has thickened, about 20-25 minutes.
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.
Turn off the heat, allow the jam to rest and then store in glass sterilized jars.
