Carrot Jam

Total Time:

50 minutes

Originaly Yeild:

4 servings




500 g,  carrot, sliced

3 medium,  lemons, finely grated zest of 2 lemons, juice of all 3

2 medium,  orange, finely grated zest and juice

1 tsp,  cardamom seeds

1000 g,  granulated sugar

125 g,  liquid pectin


  1. Place 3 saucers in the freezer to chill - you'll need them later to test the setting point of the jam. Sterilise some jam jars by washing 3-4 jars in soapy water and rinsing them in clean warm water. Allow them to drip-dry, upside down, on a rack in the oven set to 140C/Gas 1. Leave them there for at least half an hour while you make the jam.
  2. Boil the carrots in water for 15 minutes.Then drain and chop finely.
  3. Put the carrots, citrus zest and juice, and cardamom seeds in a preserving pan. Add the sugar, and simmer over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Increase the heat and boil the mixture for 5 minutes
  5. Add the pectin, return the mixture to the boil, and cook for a further 2 minutes. To test if the jam is ready, dollop a teaspoonful of the mixture onto one of the saucers from the freezer and leave for a few seconds. Push the mixture with your finger and if it gives a little and has started to set, the jam is ready.
  6. Once the jam has reached setting point, leave to cool for a further 10 minutes, then stir well. Pour into the hot sterilised jars, seal and label. The jam will keep for up to three months if stored in a cool, dry place and if the jar is sterilised correctly.
