One of my favorite fruits is kiwi. It is a very special one:
The kiwifruit, native to northern China, was first brought to and cultivated in New Zealand at the turn of the 20th century and was then known as the Chinese Gooseberry.
When the time came to export the fruit, to avoid the high duties charged on berries, the name was changed to the kiwifruit, or kiwi because of the fruit’s shared characteristics with New Zealand’s national symbol, the kiwi bird, which is also small, brown and fuzzy.2
Kiwis are a nutrient dense food, meaning they are high in nutrients and low in calories. The possible health benefits of consuming kiwis include maintaining healthy skin tone and texture, reducing blood pressure and preventing heart disease and stroke.
So, I have decided to make a very healthy jam – kiwi jam!
The recipe for bread machine is as always very simple. Just cut the fruit, put sugar and pectin and set machine to do the work.
- 2 cups of kiwis
- 1,5 cups of sugar
- 3 tbsp of pectin
You will get about two mason jars of jam.
