big pot (for cooking the jam)
large stirring spoon
fresh start fruit
if you do not have star fruit, you may substitute with pineapple
if you are using pineapple, use less sugar
you can add more if you like cinnamon
Rind of one lemon or 1 Tablespoon of grated ginger (optional)
Thoroughly wash fruit
Cut the fruit:
1. Cut off the ends.
2. Cut the peaks of each ridge on the fruit.
3. Slice around the core.
4. Cut off any remaining core. Last, slice into long pieces.
Put all the fruit into the pot. Have the heat at medium high. Stir the fruit until it begins to have a mushy texture.
Continue stirring until you get a nice simmer going on.
Add the sugar
Turn the heat up and bring to a boil. CONTINUE TO STIR. If you stop stop stirring, you may burn the jam.
Keep the boil for about 5 - 10 minutes. (you will need to turn the heat down a bit.)
Now turn the heat off, cover the jam, and leave it over night on the stove.
The next day, bring the jam to a boil.
After the jam is brough to a boil, lower the temperature and simmer one hour (or until liquid is evaporated), stirring occasionally.
