Lots of rosella jam, April 29, 2004 - 05:23 PM
Reviewer: Fay from Brisbane, Australia
We have grown six bushes of rosellas this season so have picked lots of rosellas and made lots of jam. I only boil seed pods for 30 mins. You really need to add lemon juice and/or Jamsetta pectin for this jam to set properly. If you are making a large quantity even with the added pectin it requires at least 35 mins and mostly more to boil after sugar added before it jells.

Rare Rosellas, June 6, 2005 - 11:22 PM
Reviewer: Lorraine of Ludmilla from Darwin, Northern Territory - Australia
I can see why Rosella jam costs so much at fetes etc - Rosella bushes are hard to find and it is extremely labour intensive making the jam - but well and truly worth the effort. I used your recipe but modified it to 'Fay from Brisbane's' recipe by only boiling the seed pods for 30 mins, otherwise all the liquid would have gone! I added the juice of half a lemon before adding sugar. My jam came out perfect! Now I can savour the flavour!! Quite a number of people would like to know how to grow the bushes at home - in the ground, pots, soil, water etc?? I got my 'fruit' on the road to Daly River in the NT.

My first jam, March 27, 2006 - 07:50 PM
Reviewer: minh (from Byron & Brisbane) from Brisbane Australia
This was the first jam I had ever made. I had eaten LOTS of rosella jam over the years tho' so I knew what a good one should taste like. I'd planted a bush & was now face with my crop. I boiled the seeds up in the microwave for about 20 minutes. Then I did the rest of the recipe as given. I wasn't sure, however, whether it was going to set & I didn't have a lemon or any pectin. I did have a lime so i peeled the zest off & heated it up with some water in the microwave & added it with the juice of the lime. It has set beautifully. I also kept some of the pulp back, added much less sugar & made a rosella, jalapeno & fig chutney. Very yummy. Thank you for the good advice. :)
