Strawberry Reisling Jam
This recipe will work with any fruit/wine combo you fancy. Pineapple and Sauv Blanc, blackberry and port, apricot and Riesling. Experiment!
3 cups of ripe fruit (stone fruit peeled and cut into chunks, strawberries cleaned)
1 1/2 cups of sugar (i try to do this with as little sugar as possible and if the fruit is sweet and ripe, less is definitely more, but you could add up to 2 cups if you like your jam sweeter)
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup of Riesling
Place all ingredients in a heavy duty pot and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Continue to boil and stir for around 30-40 minutes, making sure to stir the bottom so it doesn't stick. Skim off any white skin that forms. At around 40 minutes, spoon a bit onto a plate, let cool, and taste and test consistency. Once ready, spoon hot jam into mason jars and refrigerate.
