Jam of Zespri SunGold kiwifruit and blackcurrants

Ingredients Method


For a jar of 375g:

  • 200g Zespri SunGold kiwifruit (3 kiwifruits)
  • 50g white or blue plums (1 plum)
  • 50g blackcurrants or blueberries
  • the juice of half a lemon
  • 150g preserving sugar (jam sugar)
  • one cardamom pod
  • 1 cinnamon stick


  1. Peel the Zespri SunGold kiwifruits and cut them into small pieces. 
  2. Cut the plum into pieces as well, and place the fruit together with the currants/berries in a salad bowl. 
  3. Add the lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon and cardamom.
  4. Mix thoroughly, cover with plastic film, and leave to soak overnight in the fridge.
  5. The next day, pour boiling water into the empty jam jars and over the lids. 
  6. Leave the upturned jars and lids to dry on a kitchen towel. Pour the prepared mixture into a non-stick casserole and cook for 6 minutes on a high heat, stirring regularly.
  7. Squash the mixture with a fork 2 minutes before the end of the cooking time. You do not need to skim the mixture.
  8. Immediately after cooking remove the cinnamon stick and cardamom pod, and use a small wooden spoon to fill the jam jars.
  9. Put the lid on firmly, and leave the jars to cool upside down.
