JamandYogurt_6JamandYogurt_7JamandYogurt_5JamandYogurt_8JamandYogurt_4JamandYogurt_3JamandYogurt_1 This is the first time we’ve made homemade jams and I’m wondering how we’ve gone so many years without making them?! The combinations are endless, you can make them as sweet (or not) as you want and use only fresh ingredients! So we created 2 delicious homemade jams using prickly pear, fig and ginger and another one using tomatillo, pineapple and lime! I LOVED the pineapple and lime jam! Then for a delicious morning treat, mix the jam with greek yogurt and honey! You can make these charming homemade jam, yogurt and honey pots ahead of time (great for the holiday guest!) put a lid on them and refrigerate until ready to eat! They look gorgeous and anything make-ahead is always easy on the host! And yes, you can always just use store-bought jam if you really want to keep it easy! You can find the cute little jars here! Happy jamming!!

Prickly Pear, Fig and Ginger Jam (makes 8 ounces)
2 cups chopped prickly pear
2 cups chopped figs
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 lemon rind
1 /4 cup sugar plus 1 tablespoon sugar

Directions

Put the prickly pear and 1/4 cup sugar in a pot over medium heat. Boil until fruit softens and bubbles form. Strain out the seeds from the prickly pear and put the juice back in the pot with the chopped figs. Add the lemon juice, ginger and lemon rind. The rind has extra natural pectin that will help thicken the jam. Add the extra tablespoon of sugar and allow the jam to boil until it thickens, about 10 minutes. Transfer the jam to a blender and pulse quickly 3 times to smooth it out. Allow to cool and thicken and transfer to a jar.

Tomatillo, Pineapple and Lime Jam (makes 8 ounces)
2 cups chopped tomatillos
2 cups chopped pineapple
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
1 lime rind
1/4 cups sugar plus 3 tablespoon sugar

Directions

Put the chopped tomatillos and pineapple in a pot with the sugar, lime juice and rind. Bring to a boil and let simmer until the sauce thickens, approximately 25 minutes. Transfer the jam to a blender and pulse quickly 2 times to smooth it out. Allow to cool and thicken and transfer to a jar.
