1 or 2 pomelos
120 g sugar
200 g honey
50 ml water
Farmer Richard gave us this recipe for Chinese pomelo jam. Richard: 'We often make pomelo jam in China. You can use it as a spread for on your sandwich, as an ingredient for baking cakes, or as a flavour enhancer in savoury dishes. In China, we use this jam mainly to make hot tea or a refreshing cold beverage. Simply add it to hot or cold water and stir thoroughly. Really nice on a hot day!'
Grate the peel from the pomelos (just the outer green part, not into the white underneath). Set the grated peel aside. Now peel the pomelos entirely and remove the white membranes surrounding the sections.
Put the pomelo sections, the grated peel, water and sugar into a pan. Bring to the boil.
After about five minutes, once the fruit and peel are soft, pour the mixture into a blender. Blend into a very smooth purée.
Pour the purée back into the pan and add the honey. Boil continuously until the jam thickens. Don't stir too often, but make sure that the jam doesn't stick to the side of the pan.
Allow the jam to cool completely before putting it into a glass jar. The jam is now ready to use.
