No, it just isn't. It's "frutation jam".
mybabyjohn; Ha Ha!! and it has that awful plasticky texture.
You can't beat the taste and texture of real fruit. My favourites are Strawberry & Raspberry conserve piled high on toast yummmy :-).
Hi River,Apart, that is, from Apricot Jam. Apricots are Satan's fruit and should be eradicated from the planet with maximum prejudice.Otherwise, I agree.:0)CheersPM
HHHMMMmmm... my jams have all been made with real fruit. I wonder would I be more or less successful at country shows using artificial fruit? Although it's a bit hard to source - do I sense a new business opportunity???
Made with 'real' fruit. Sometimes you have to wonder what that is, River. Here in Australia at the moment I baulk at buying bananas once a staple in my diet. They come in at $15.00 a kilo. It pains me to pay for this real fruit but I almost cannot bear to do without it. Gorgeous jam here. Such a rich apricot orange.
Some of the sales pitches are over the top ...but I love jam with more fruit than sugar :).
I can't do apricot jam but a good strawberry one? Goes down an absolute treat!
oh yes...I just love the *real* ingredients..bit like when the tv chefs says "use some really really good *ingredient*"i mean............really..who is going to use the BAD ingredients???
Windsmoke; thinly on toast, but piled high on scones with cream. Yum!Plasman; I love apricot jam and canned apricots and dried apricots and fresh apricots and apricot nectar......Red Nomad; success would probably depend on whether you used plastic, wooden or wax fruit. and of course if people actually wanted to eat it.Elisabeth; real fruit as opposed to display fruit made from plastic or wood.Sarah; I prefer apricot, but strawberry is good too. I love raspberry, but the seeds get stuck in my teeth.peskypixies; TV chefs are over-rated.
Last year I had a bumper crop of apricots and had intended to make jam but somehow they all vanished in hungry mouths before I could get to the jam making. Yummmy pictures. Apricot jam, my favorite.Manzanita@Wannabuyaduck
Manzanita; ha ha. Next season you might need to hide a bucket of them before the kids see them.
