Dumpsie Dearie Jam

Dumpsie Dearie Jam is a recipe which was given to me by an old neighbour... from memory I believe she said it was an old Gloucestershire recipe! I love the name - and the taste!!  Lovely with freshly buttered fresh bread out of the oven!

Dumpsie Dearie Jam

  • 2lbs pears
  • 2lbs cooking apples
  • 2lbs plums
  • 5lbs sugar
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 oz fresh ginger root
Take the plums and cut them in halve and remove the stone.  Core the apples and pears and peel the skin.

Take a large pan and and put all the fruit into it. Add the lemon zest and juice, cloves (ground) and ginger root (bruised).  On a genle heat simmer until the fruit become soft.   (If the fruit starts to stick to the pan add some water - just a little).  Add the sugar and stir in until it is dissolved and bring to the boil.

Boil rapidly for 15-20 minutes until it reaches setting point.

Pour into jars (sterilised) and seal. 

Spread over fresh bread and enjoy!

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
