Homemade Mixed Fruit Jam


Homemade Mixed Fruit Jam is a simple and delicious mix of fruits. I never thought would be making jam at home but while browsing through the website of Sara’s corner, I could not resist myself, since all the fruits she used were at home plus I have a Guava tree at home. I did make my own additions and exceptions since I didn’t have couple of ingredients. So slightly changed the recipe, it tasted delicious. Kids will surely love! The exact period of the origin of jams are debatable. There is no precise date regarding its origin. But you can be sure of one thing. It dates back to stone age. Preserves got into existence since there was food shortage. Of course necessity is the mother of invention. That is how jams came into existence. The first jam recipe officially recorded was by Marcus Gavis Apicius from Rome dating back to 4th Century AD. Therefore this jam falls in the continental food category.
