Just a quick post this evening where my two absolute favourites come together: beetroot and blood oranges. Both are in season, both have gorgeous colours so no wonder that the jam looks just amazing. Nothing can beat beets, that is for sure!
200 g beetroot (weighed peeled)
200 g blood orange (weighed peeled)
1 organic orange and its juice
juice of 1 lemon
pinch of ground clove
250 g sugar
2 tablespoons agar-agar
Finely grate beetroot. If you manage to get organic blood oranges, then grate the peel finely, if not cut it off and cut out the segments of the oranges. Grate peel of the organic orange and juice. Put everything into a pot, add sugar, ground clove and agar-agar and bring it to the boil. As soon as it starts to thicken remove from the heat and pour into jars.
