Author: 
Recipe type: Jam
Cuisine: British
 
Ingredients
  • 230g (8oz) coarsely shredded carrots
  • 200g (7oz) brown sugar
  • 3 lemons
  • 2.5ml (1/2 tsp) cinnamon
  • 2.5ml (1/2 tsp) cloves
Instructions
  1. Top, tail and wash the carrots - do not skin them.
  2. Shred the carrots using a coarse grater, or chop into thin chunks.
  3. Slice the lemons, removing any pips.
  4. Put all the ingredients into a jam pan and simmer, stirring constantly at first to stop the ingredients burning.
  5. After about 20 / 30 minutes the mix will thicken and all the carrot pieces will be soft and tender.
  6. Pour into prepared jars, seal the tops and allow to cool.
Notes
The jam has a texture similar to fine cut marmalade, but if larger chunks or a smooth jam are preferred, simply cut the carrots into rougher chunks at stage (2), or put the mix through a blender between stages (5) and (6).
