Not sure if anyone can help.......

Has anyone got a recipe for making jam from Drenki fruit?

Also is there an easy way to remove the pips from them?

Can they just be steamed to release their juice?

May seem daft questions but we have an abundance of them and want to put them to good use.

Many thanks.

Handy if you have the runs.... Wink

The usual way of using them is boiling them and swigging the resulting liquid - sweetened for preference unless you're a masochist!

The recipe for jam is to keep them - unwashed, as they go mouldy quickly when wet/damp - for 2 or 3 days. Then wash them and immediately bung them in a pan and just cover with water; bring the water to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook until the fruit is soft. Press the fruit through a coarse sieve to remove skin and pips. Add ordinary sugar - the fruit has more than enough pectin of its own Wink - at the rate of 500gm sugar to 1kg of the fruit pulp and bring to a simmer again. Pop into hot, sterile jars and you're in business.

You wish mate Laughing !

I was thinking more along the lines of Robinson's jam as I'm sure your school didn't use the cheap stuff. You'll know if you had that as no matter what flavour it purports to be it all tastes the same, gash....

You seriously think that the outrageous school fees paid by the Pater bought luxuries like that? We were supposed to learn to enjoy weevil-infested hardtack and mouldy bully beef while cheering up the Other Ranks - and shooting them with a trusty Webley Mark IV if they demurred when invited to go over the top.... Cool

I remember it well....
In reality we saw the Fortnum and Mason hampers arriving like clockwork whilst we had bully beef, hard tack and that God awful Plum and Apple jam. Where did all the nice jam go eh? We all had cunning plans to avoid going over the top when the whistle went, though none worked. ln my case some brainless Rupert accidentally shot me barely yards from the trench, citing tripping over the barbed wire. In reality hiding from the Jerries of course, what a cad (good move, saved wasting your expensive education...). But he had a ever so polite apology. I was rather more erudite about it in ways they don't teach at public school.
And look at what we survived to see...

OTT ? Laughing Laughing Laughing

It's as if only the stupid survived in the political classes, with the exception of W S Churchill and maybe Margaret Thatcher.

And the world is paying the price because of IT, with the inertia of the general public who have resigned responsibility for virtually everything, just want mollycoddling as they drift through life...... Confused Rolling Eyes

Oh Golly a thread mentioning Robertson's Jam, but not the infamous marketing label they used. I had a good collection of their badges back in the day. I would most probably be lynched if I dared to wear such today.

However, I have to state that the KING of manufactured Jams has to go to Hartley. There was usually a catering sized tin of Hartley's Strawberry Jam with Bread and Margarine next to the Bromide flavoured Tea Urn in the numerous Army Cookhouses I frequented. I was always pleased to dig out a whole strawberry and there were many packed inside those tins. They were also very attractive to the local Wasps when out in the field and located in a Mess Tent. At least if you did end up on the end of a Jerry Bayonet, you knew that the Hartley's sticky stuff would seal the wound. Rolling Eyes

On another subject (MOD) won't worry about off topic at this late stage surely - I used to collect a lot of cards, not just the Football Tea Cards etc. but we had a converted Coach/Bus that would come to our street once or twice per week selling foodstuffs (before the corner shops took over) and we would buy these Bubble Gum with fantastic coloured pictures depicting the most horrible gory scenes from the American Civil War - their saving grace was that on the back, they had the full historical history of said battle. Eventually however, my stash was eventually compromised and confiscated by my Parents. There were so many things back then that we just accepted and without any detrimental effect. If nothing else, it taught me that getting an almost Yard long bayonet shoved through your guts was not heroic and would require far more treatment than the usual Band Aid Plaster. Nowadays, kids would no doubt be claiming compensation for PTSD after viewing such cards and yet, they can view the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and think it a work of art. Strange world eh. Rolling Eyes Wink
