Christmas Jam

We are on the last bit of homemade nashi jam so I decided to make some kaki jam to restock the fridge. I made this last year but used ginger, this time I used cinnamon, ground cloves and nutmeg. It is lovely, thick and sticky and smells and tastes like Christmas, I can't see the amount I made lasting very long!
Recipe:
500g kaki
200g sugar
cinnamon, ground cloves and nutmeg to taste (I didn't measure it sorry)
about 200ml of water

Chop the fruit into small pieces.
Put everything in a pan and bring to the boil.
Simmer for about 30 minutes, water has reduced and is thick and sticky.
Jar in sterilized jars.
Eat of freshly baked bread for the best result!

  1. What is KAKI? Is it available in the US? If not, is there a good equivalent? The jam sounds wonderful and I would love to make it!

  2. I think in English they are Japanese Persimmon, in the UK they are possibly called Sharon fruit.

  3. I love the smell of cinnamon... it's so british! when i lived in the UK i remember seeing apple and cinnamon yogurt... In france the flavours you get is so different... and since then I have been hooked on cinnamon;) seems that canadians also like cinnamon ;)
