An interesting combination of fruit flavours closed in a jar. Trust me, it will not stay there for very long. As a bread spread, ice-cream topping, pancake stuffing or in preparation of cakes. Enjoy!
1 kg (2.20 lb) melons
500 g (17.5 oz) apples
750 g (26 oz) sugar
Clean, wash and cube the melons and the apples. Sprinkle the apple additionally with lemon juice so it does not change colour due to air exposure.
Put them in a deep, wide pan, add sugar and cook until it thickens.
Pour the jam in hot jars (previously heated to 100°C/212°F for 30 minutes) and close well. Turn the jars upside down for about 5 minutes, and then turn them back so the jam cools gradually.
Serve for breakfast as bread spread, as pancake stuffing, for cakes, or next to vanilla ice-cream.
