Carrot jam.

Yes, you have read well. A carrot jam.
Maybe it will sound a little bit strange, but I made this experiment the other day and the result is soooo tasty 🙂 It’s even so easy to make and it doesn’t require a lot of pans and materials, only creativity and patience.

Carrot jam

Ingredients: (x 1 medium jar)
300gr sweet carrots
100gr brown sugar
150ml water
half of an apple
one lemon

Wash accurately the carrots and the apple and remove all stems.
Chop the carrots and the apple in cubes, put in a large pan with water and let it cook at light heat.
Add sugar, the lemon juice and the lemon curd and cook for about one hour, stir every 15minutes.
Add water if it too dry.
When the carrots are mashed the jam is ready, you can melt better with the aid of a mixer, but first remove the lemon curd if you don’t like.
Put the jam in a jar and let it cool down upside down.
Add a pinch of cinnamon as taste. 😉
