My husband made Cinnamon Squash Jam for me yesterday. I had to share the recipe as it was delicious. As I mentioned on twitter, one of the best homemade jams I ever tried. I planned to make it, but I wasn’t feeling very well, so my husband stepped in and made the jam for me. The jam was so delicious, as cinnamon and squash compliment each other nicely.
We are very keen on homemade jam, with all sort of different flavours, like Pina Colada Jam and Rhubarb and vanilla jam.
The jam is packed with fruits. From 3 medium sized squashes, my husband made enough cinnamon squash jam for 3 small jars. While, like most jams, has added sugar, is less than it is in shop-bought jams. The addition of cinnamon, not only tastes beautifully, but it gives a bit of healthy kick. It’s the first time I tried pumpkin (or squash) jam, but it will not be the last.
Ingredients for 3 small jam jars:
– 1.3kg squash (3 medium squashes)
– 650g sugar
– 5 spoons of lemon juice
– 3tsp cinnamon powder
