When we asked Ashley with Grinning Jupiter Jammery to create teas using our SoGo line of teas, she was all in. No surprise there, Ashley’s flavor combinations are always magical. Ashley chose Mango Marigold Green Tea with its brisk Sencha Green Tea with bits of mango and marigold petals. This tea added such amazing dimension to jam. The scone didn’t know what hit it.
1 cup pureed pineapple
2 cups Mango Marigold Green Tea
1/4 cup lemon juice
7 cups sugar
2 liquid pectin packs
First, prepare the tea. In a reusable tea bag, measure 4 Tbl Mango Marigold Green Tea. Steep in 2 cups near-boiling water for 10 mins.
In a nonreactive pot, add steeped tea, pineapple, lemon juice and sugar. Bring to a rolling boil while stirring constantly. Allow to continue boiling for 1 minute. Turn off heat and skim the foam from the top.
In prepared canning jars, pour hot jam into the jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Boil in a water bath for 5 minutes.
