Any one got a good recipe for Kiwi fruit Jam please. I was given a jar & it was lovely. Think it had lemon or orange juice in it.

Plain kiwifruit jam would be 1kg of peeled and chopped fruit and 1kg of sugar. If you use less sugar you might have to refrigerate or freeze if you want to keep it more than a few months.

I used to make half tamarillo half kiwifruit jam which was great.
Or you can add any citrus peel grated or juice.

It is essential that the kiwifruit is slightly unripe. Fully ripe and soft will not set without some help.

Same as Uli I always do weight for weight with sugar. My favourite is Kiwifruit and Tangelo Jam.

Kiwi fruit and ginger jam the best. use preserved ginger and use as little or as much as you like. Like others equal kiwi fruit to sugar The extra on preserved ginger is not enough to worry about.

The recipe I want has a vanilla bean/vanilla paste in it.

Finally got the recipe from my neighbour & she said she was muddled up & it was the fejoia jam that had the vanilla bean/paste in so I have a jar of bean paste @ $10.99 ready for fejoia season.
Made the kiwi fruit, orange & lemon juice jam yesterday. set really well & very yummy as well as the rhubarb & banana jam don't know which I like best.

Hi Niffer, just making this jam, seems very watery. Did you have to boil for long until it went thick. Thanks
