Kiwi are the best fruit for jam recipes.
You’d love the taste of kiwi jam so much, this will be your favorite jam. With just 3 ingredients, the jam is set amazingly without pectin.
We will make this homemade kiwi jam without pectin with just three ingredients.
Wash kiwi and peel kiwi. Because we will use firm kiwi, scooping is not possible, you'll need to peel it.
Chop kiwi in to small peices.
Transfer chopped kiwi, sugar and lemon juice to a pan.
Cover and cook kiwi for 15 minutes on medium-low heat until color of kiwi changes completely and kiwi turns soft and mushy.
Remove lid and when jam turn glossy, blend jam with immersion blender. Few whizz here and there will break the flesh. I keep it slighty chunky. You can also use a potato mesher.
Continue to cook for 10 minutes until jam reaches setting point. Keep stirring at intervals and reduce heat towards the end.
Do a cold plate test on the jam by spreading a teaspoon of jam on a cold plate. If jam holds its shape on the plate without spreading, it is ready.
Fill hot jam in a clean dry jar and store in the fridge for 3 weeks or freeze for up to a year. The kiwi jam will be thick and chunky just like store bought jams.
