Here is the recipe for Mango Tart Fruit Flight Jam I posted recently to @localfoodbloomington on Instagram. The picture above shows the jam on French Toast made using one of the Ezekial Breads, local eggs and half and half (I was out of my usual Almond or Coconut milks). I don't recall whichEzekial bread, maybe sesame with fresh organic blueberries!
A couple of days ago after experiencing a 100% buckwheat pancake at a friends, I decided to experiment at home to see if I too could have fluffy buckwheat pancakes without the addition of any wheat flours. I mixed up a batch of organic buckwheat blueberry pancakes using a blend of organic buckwheat with some brown rice, rye flours, a few tablespoons of my sourdough starter, and the blueberries. I added a little cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, ginger, and coriander into the mixture to add additional subtle flavors.
I topped the pancakes with organic butter and three different Quilter's Comfort/Grandma jam/jellies. A smear of Papaya Butter maded with local honey(you know that even using different local honeys will give slightly different taste), Red Bud Flower Jelly and Mango Tart Fruit Flight Jam! Oh my! Try something like this! Flavor to flavor to flavor, really switches things up just a little bit. I really enjoyed the additional playfulness with my food.
I made one of the blueberry buckwheat pancakes and cooked until mostly done. Plated it, cooled, covered and transported to a friend who refrigerated it over night, heated it for breakfast. I received a note saying "I made organic blueberry syrup for pancake & added fresh strawberries. Oh my gosh! Delicious! Thank you so much!" I had Mango Tart Fruit Flight jam for her, but forgot to leave it.
Mango Tart Fruit Flight
-1 bottle of Bell's Larry's Passion Fruit Flight
-2 limes (organic) for their juice
-1 cup filtered water (steep herbs in heated water)
-6 teaspoons of Quilter's Chamomile HipHop (it adds a additional depth for your mouth to explore)
-a pinch of organic rose petals
-1 fresh mango (peeled and cut unto small chunks)\
-3 cups of sugar (organic)
-2/3 cups pectin (I think that may be about 2 boxes)
Follow the Instructions for jam making inside the pectin box or from a favored recipe book.
Makes aproximalely 12 - 4 oz canning jars plus
There is but one thing that I would do differently, if that; it would be to use honey in the making.
If I have the opportunity, next spring, I will make a new small batch and test out the honey idea.
Life is a mystery, and you never know what adventures lay before you!
In my experience, and I have been making beer jellies/jams almost ten years; you have to tweak every beer recipe. Yes, tweak beer by beer to find just the right ingredient balance of flavors. Each beer has its only story, and you only have a glimpse of it based on the senses you bring to your tasting.
Allow your life to take flight!
Enjoy and find love in the moment!
