The umbrella here is a hand made one. Wanna know how to make it?? Check out my new crafts blog.



Mixed Fruit Jam

This can be made with those fruits available for the season. Its not a must to use all of them. Choose at least 3 types of fruits for better taste.

Ingredients:
  • Banana -1
  • Fruits - grapes, apple, strawberry, pineapple etc.,
  • Sugar - as required
  • Citric powder - a pinch (preservative)
How to make it:

Mash bananas. Grind each fruit separately in a blender. For every cup of ground mixture, add 3/4 cup of sugar. Cook on medium heat in a heavy bottom pan until it becomes thick (Dip a scissor inside and when released, it should form a thin line). Add a pinch of citric if making in large quantities.
