      TM 31

Recipe's preparation

    Sterilize 3-4 bottles with boiling water and then bottles may be placed in oven on 100 degrees to dry and keep warm
  1. Peel ripe persimmons, usually I just squeeze insides out of their skins

    Weigh persimmons in TM bowl. Add lemon juice.

    Blend 30 seconds / Speed 7


    Cook 20 minutes/ Varoma temperature / Speed 4 with basket on top

    Add sugar and puree for 30 Seconds / Speed 8


    Cook a further 6-10 minutes /Varoma temperature/ Speed 2-4   


    If starts to bubble over turn down to 100 degrees and adjust speed. Finish on varoma temperature

    You can check that the jam has jellied by testing on a chilled saucer or by letting it dip off a spoon and observing the drops to see that they are jelling. 

    Pour jam into sterilized bottles, tighten lids firmly and turn upside down until cooled



Accessories you need



I have done 1600 gm of persimons, 700 gm sugar and 4 tablespoons of lemon juice but is very inclined to bubble over.

If TM bowl burns slightly, soak with vinegar for 1/2 hour and use your brush
