Physalis and Green Tea Jam
A fragrant, delicately flavoured jam, with background hints of green tea.
strong Green Tea
Start off by thoroughly washing a small, empty conserve jar and lid. Preheat your oven to 150 degrees celsius and place the jar and lid into the hot oven for about 10 minutes to sterilize it.
Remove the papery leaves from the physalis and then wash them, before cutting each one in half.
Place into a small pan and add the green tea. Cover and simmer for about 3 - 5 minutes, until the physalis have started to soften a little more.
Add the sugar and bring to the boil. Boil the jam for about 5 minutes before gently pouring into the sterilized, and still quite hot, conserve jar.
Seal immediately, and allow to cool before enjoying.
The jam is great as a topping for toast or english muffins, but goes equally well with bread and cheese.
