Physalis and Green Tea Jam

Physalis and Green Tea Jam

A fragrant, delicately flavoured jam, with background hints of green tea.
Servings 1


  • 200 g Physalis
  • 120 g Jam-making Sugar
  • 120 ml 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.
