Well, amidst the hustle and bustle of the ongoing season,I am posting this recipe,as I thought this being a wonderfulecipe,could be used in making tarts,biscuits,pies cakes,biscuits …and even as a spread on bread crackers,rotis….Kids will really love the taste.
The creation story in short,papaw bought to make vegetable pickle ,turned a little ripe…and though this can be made into a lovely salad I thought to make this jam which was on my mind for a long time.So this turned to be the moment for it..The ginger in it gives a lovely taste.To add to this ,I have added a permisson fruit too ,asit has the same texture of papaw.So do try this awesome jam and send in your comments.
