How to make Vietnamese Fruit Jam

mut dua


1kg (2.2 lbs) pineapple, sliced

500g (1.1 lb) sugar

1/2 cup ginger, julienned

1/4 cup mandarin skin, julienned

2 tbsp lime juice

Blanch julienned ginger and mandarin skin for 30 seconds to remove the spiciness and bitterness.

In a large microwavable bowl, mix sugar and sliced pinapple, blanched ginger and mandarin skin (you can divide into a few batches)

Let marinate for 30 mins

Microwave for 10 minutes on medium heat, uncovered

Take out, mix well and add lime juice

Microwave for another 10 mins. Take out and mix well

Repeat until all the juice evaporate and the jam thickens and turns into amber color.

When the juice has reduced a lot, microwave for shorter period to avoid burning the jam.

(You can remove some of the juice to speed up the microwaving time)

Let cool and store Vietnamese Fruit Jam in a jar. (The jam will get thicker after cooling.
