Bumpety bump. . :-) Tamarillo's, kiwifruit, etc ready to harvest - and citrus just starting too. . yum. .

juliewn, May 17, 2:22pm
Has anyone tried using tamarillo's to make jelly - the jam type of jelly? ? I'd think it would taste very good, without the pips to bite on. .

Tomato Jam A while back someone mentioned Tomato Jam recipe. Not sure if has been posted but here is one I make. Peter Gordons Tomato & Chilli Jam. 500grm very ripe tomatoes (I use a couple of cheap tins); 4 red chillis (I use a tsp out of a jar! ); 6cm piece ginger chopped (I use out of jar); 30mls asian fish sauce; 300grm demera sugar; 100mls red wine vinegar. Cook for about 40 mins or until thick and syrupy. Pour into sterilised warm jars. Makes about 4 jars. Nice on crackers with creamcheese or cheese. Enjoy

Maggie62 Would anyone have a recipe for Honeyed Shallots please.

juliewn, May 31, 9:28am
That sounds good Nettie. . yum! Hi Maggie. . are the honeyed shallots like a pickled onion type of recipe? ? ? If so, you could use a teaspoon or so of honey per cup of vinegar - white or spiced or wine vinegar are nice with shallots - and pour them over peeled shallots placed in jars - cover the shallots completely in the vinegar/honey mix. Leave 2 weeks before using. If not like this, and if you've purchased a jar of them, are the ingredients listed on the jar label, so you could use the same ingredients. . let us know so we can help further. .

maggie62, May 31, 9:49pm
Honey Shallots Thank you Juliewn for that. The shallots were home made and were done by a gentleman that has passed away hence no recipe, these were beautiful to eat and your spiced vinegar/Wine Vinegar might be the answer.
I appreciate your answer and will try your suggestions, Thank you.

You're most welcome Maggie. . :-) let us know how you get on. . cheers. . Julie
