I have a glut of Kiwi fruit from our market run. Saw a Kiwi Fruit Microwave Jam recipe from The Klutzy Cook that was just the answer.
750g green kiwifruit, peeled, chopped
1 apple peeled, cored, chopped
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 cup white sugar
Combine kiwifruit, apple and lemon juice in a large, microwave safe bowl or jug. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes to warm the fruit.
Remove fruit from microwave and stir through the sugar. Return the mixture to the microwave for 3 minutes, stirring every minute to ensure sugar is completely dissolved. Microwave on HIGH for a further 15 to 18 minutes or until jam reaches setting point.
To sterilize the jars and lids, wash them in hot soapy water then rinse well in hot water and drain. Put the jars into a low oven (100C-120C/210F-250F) for a minimum of 20 minutes. Remove the jars about 10 minutes before use so that they are still warm when bottling the jam.
I am such a geek I actually got a thrill out of the jar sealing! I put the jam upside down (while jar is still warm) and after a while the jar lid had sucked in tight!! My first sterilizing!! YAY
It TASTES so GOOD just dolloped on Yoghurt!
