This is my first post about food, I'm very excited and a bit afraid.
I love food and I love cooking, especially reinvented and modern Italian recipes.
Here you'll find some quick recipes for a light meal or snack and some more elaborate ones to prepare for friends and families.
I cook following the seasons and try to use local products as much as I can.
The other day I noticed we were out of jam and I had lots of plums, so I decide to make some jam!
It's the easiest thing ever. Chop some plums (they need to be nice and riped) and put them in a pan with some brown sugar and let it cook at a very low temperature for one hour.
During that time check consistency, the fruit should start to break and you my want to add a little bit of water.
At the very last moment add a bit of finely chopped mint (I grow lots of different kinds and my favourite for this jam is spearmint).
There you have your super natural plum jam!
If you want you can add some chopped almonds, they're lovely with the acidity of the plums.
