Let’s make some homemade tropical fruit jam now!
Tips for your bread maker:
Bread Machine Program: Jam (#9)
Delay Start Time Available: No
Color Option: No
Weight Option: No
1 cup peeled and diced mango
1 cup diced pineapple
1 cup raspberries
½ teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon Juice
1 teaspoon pectin
Open the top lid of the bread maker and remove the bread pan from the machine by pulling it upward.
Make sure the bread pan is clean and both kneading paddles are in place.
Add the mango, pineapple and raspberries in a large bowl and mash them roughly with a fork. You can also quickly puree them in a blender if you want a smoother jam.
Pour the mashed fruit into the bread pan and add the remaining ingredients as well.
Put the bread pan back in the bread machine by pressing it down so that it clicks into its place, and close the lid.
Plug the bread machine into an outlet and press the "Power" button to turn the machine on.
Use the "Program" button to select the program #9 for the jam cycle.
Press the "Start" button to start the jam making cycle.
Your machine will let you know by making a beep sound once the tropical jam is done. Open the bread machine at this point and remove the bread pan using a pot holder.
Transfer the jam into 2 sterilized 8-ounce jars and close the lids while the jam is still hot. You can close the jar’s lid after the jam cools down if you’d like to eat it soon.
Enjoy tropical jam!
