Quest for Apricots | 杏の里を訪ねて、、 Part 1

Although we’ve been encountering continuous rain during this ‘monsoon’ season, there are few days of hiatus here and there where when we decided to take a trip known to be the ‘Home of the Apricots’ in Nagano-prefecture (I will place a link but unfortunately none of the web pages have English sites).

Kiwi Jam

Fresh and natural grown KIWI from my sister. I’ve been waiting to ripen – which I have kept the Kiwi in a dark room concealed in a plastic bag together with an apple. Kiwi jam goes well with yoghurt and my handmade breads…especially the ‘Campagnes’.   Kiwi Jam Kiwi (ripe) Sugar 20% of Kiwi Pinch of Salt Lemon Juice   If the Kiwi is not ripe, keep the Kiwi in a dark room in a plastic concealed bag with an apple. The apple will help the Kiwi to ripen. Peel the Kiwi and add 20% of sugar and a pinch of salt and bring to medium boil. Once the Kiwi starts to soften in syrup add lemon juice (to your liking).
