This is one my most exciting ventures in the kitchen – I am still rollicking with Verge’s Cooking with Fruits books. The thing about such books is while we want to remain completely true to the recipe, they often also kindle creativity and allows your brain to fantasize a new and exciting way of .. more >

Directions:

1

Wash strawberries thoroughly and cut the heads off.

2

Remove the head of the Habanero.

3

In a blender, add the strawberries and the Habanero and grind, do not use any water.

4

Grate the ginger with the finer side of the grater.

5

Ready a saucepan.

6

Add the purée quickly followed by the honey and agave.

7

Add the grated ginger as well.

8

Let them cook together for about 3-4 minutes.

9

In 1 tsp of water, mix the pectin like you would began to thicken sauce.

10

Gently dribble it into the pan stirring swiftly as you do it so that you do not encounter knots or white balls of unbroken pectin!

11

Allow it to thicken some and switch off.

12

Leave overnight.

13

Come morning, find a nice bottle to transfer it into, you will have the perfect consistency of a jam/preserve.

Cooks' note:
One thing you will notice is the spiciness of the jam from the previous night would have tempered down a bit and will only get you at the very end of the taste, so that part coincided with the Gombey preserves we bought and I was quite relieved and happy that I was able to recreate a similar taste without using too many preservatives. Enjoy with dosa, idlis and the usual food mates like bread and pancakes!
