How to Make Dragon Fruit Jam in Your Very Own Kitchen

This dragon fruit jam will look very much like raspberry or strawberry jam. Dragon fruit is actually quite light in flavor unlike other fruits, but it tastes completely different with the addition of lemon. It gives you a very special mingled flavor between the two.

Ingredients:

  • 1 kg dragon fruits, cubed
  • 400gr sugar
  • 1 lemon, quartered (squeeze out the juice)
  • 1/3 cup water

*you will need a chilled plate and 2 empty jars

Directions:

  1. Combine dragon fruit, lemon juice, lemon skin and water into a non-stick pot. Simmer over medium heat until it becomes soft and juicy.
  2. Add in sugar and leave to boil by increasing the heat. Try to press on the lemon skin for the pectin. Keep stirring the mixture constantly until thickened.
  3. Place a teaspoon of the hot jelly to a chilled plate to test if it is ready for canning. If the jelly holds its shape a bit, like an egg, then it’s ready. Once it’s ready, off the heat and pour out the jelly into jars.


To Prepare the Jars:
You can bake them in the oven at 200 degree Celsius for about 5-10 minutes and then leave them for cooling, or boiling them in a pot of water, drain and dry up fast and then leave aside to cool slowly.

To Seal the Jars:
Quickly put on the lids once finished filling in the jam. Then over turn the jar and leave cool completely upside down.
