Homemade Jams - A Delicious Gift

Homemade Jams - A Delicious Gift

3 ideas for homemade jam and 3 ideas for creative packaging

Summer, sun and sweet fruit! We all love to make jam so we can keep the delicious taste of summer that little bit longer! Once our fruity taste sensations were finished, we created rustic packaging for each one too. A treat for everyone!

Whether strawberry jam with green and black pepper, melon and mango spread or pineapple preserve, we have been creating unique recipes in our Woodies kitchen! Our colleagues are raving about these sweet treats, but what do you think?

Strawberry jam with green and black pepper

Erdbeere2 En

What you need:

•    1 kilogram washed strawberries, cut into small pieces
•    3-5 teaspoons of green peppercorns (preserved in brine)
•    500 grams jam sugar
•    1 teaspoon lemon flavouring
•    1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper

This is how it’s done:

Mix the strawberries with the green peppercorns and the preserving sugar in a large pan and bring to a boil on a medium heat. Then leave to bubble for 3 minutes. After this, add the lemon flavouring and the black pepper and stir carefully. Fill sterilised jam jars with the hot mixture and seal immediately.


Melon and mango spread

Melone Mango En

What you need:

•    1 Galia melon
•    1 mango
•    1 lemon for its peel and juice
•    1 kilogram jam sugar
•    1 tablespoon finely chopped mint

This is how it’s done:

Purée the melon and mango flesh. Pour the purée into a pan, grate the lemon peel and add to the mixture. Then press the lemon and add the juice to the pan. Finally, stir in the jam sugar and slowly bring to a boil. Leave to bubble for 4 minutes, then add the finally chopped mint and fill into sterilised jam jars. Seal immediately.

A tip from grandma: As soon as you have sealed the jars, turn them upside down. The jam is meant to last longer this way.  


Pineapple preserve

Annanas En

What you need:

•    1 kilogram fresh pineapple
•    1 kilogram jam sugar
•    4 centilitres of orange liquor

This is how it’s done:

Peel the pineapple and remove the core. Cut into rough pieces and make into a rough purée using a blender. Add the fruit purée and the sugar to a large pan. Bring the mixture slowly to a boil at a medium heat and then leave to bubble for 4 minutes. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the orange liquor and then fill into sterilised jam jars. Seal immediately.


Ther right packaging

Once finished, we decorated these three fruity treasures with Woodies stamps and designed rustic packaging for each of them. This way, our fruity trio makes three times the impact!
