I believe it’s nicer, and more importantly much more fun to make your own jams and compotes than getting a jar from a supermarket. Especially in the summer, there are so many different fruits available, which definitely gives me a lot of ideas for lovely homemade jams;)
A few days ago, we got a good selection of fruits such as kiwi fruits, plums, nectarines and apples. They were so ripe that I decided to turn them into jams.
I had tried apple jam and plum jam but never made a jam with kiwi fruit before… well, that could only mean one thing, “Just give it a go”.
However, because I don’t really like the tanginess of kiwi…, because I didn’t have that many of them…, because I had some nectarines…., and because I simply wanted to try it… I decided to make Kiwi & Nectarine jam.
Good! All under control… cut the fruits.. add sugar and cook them until they become nice thick consistency. See? Easy peasy… ;D
Let me introduce my lovely Jam family…

Enjoy them with bread, yogurt, ice cream, biscuits… anything and everything!!
