Summer fruit jam

Every week I buy what I cannot grow from the veggie man who comes to our door. It is not organic produce, but it is straight from the market to me.

His plums were very cheap so I bought a box. The ones that have not been eaten I turned into some yummy, although tart, jam.

Our granadillas are ripening fast and furious, yesterday I picked about 15. My oldest daughter would not negotiate - she WANTED granadilla butter. It's like lemon curd, just with granadillas.

This is my recipe:
100g butter, melted in double boiler
1 cup of granadilla pulp
4 eggs beaten
1.5 cups sugar

Melt the butter, add the sugar and pulp. When the sugar has just melted add the beaten eggs stirring constantly. Stir until thickens, pour into sterilized jars. Simpy delicious on toast, over icecream or a topping for scones.
