The following recipe for a jam made from Island fruits came from Caroline Farias, a friend and the subject of Conversations with Caroline Kuliaikanu`ukapu Wilcox DeLima Farias, A Series of Seven Hawaiian Oral History Interviews conducted between 1992 and 1993. The interviews express her reflections on her family, Hawaiian culture, and life in upcountry Maui during the early twentieth century. Most were conducted in Auntie Carol’s home in Kāne`ohe, Hawai`i, on the island of O`ahu. We were usually in her sitting room surrounded by antique koa furniture,
heirloom furnishings, books, photographs, and a chiming clock. One of our very special conversations took place on land that once belonged to her family on the island of Maui, in the beachside community of Kalepolepo [now part of Kīhei]. Sadly, Auntie Carol passed from the family, friends and land she loved so much in 2001. Whenever I see a rainbow, I feel I've received a blessing from her enduring spirit!
AN ADAPTATION OF CAROL'S PINEAPPLE-PAPAYA JAM
As with all of the recipes I share, portions of ingredients can be adapted to your taste and supplies.
1 Fresh Pineapple, cored and chopped finely
4 Fresh Papayas, peeled and cut in small pieces
1 Cup of Sugar [or a sugar replacement]
1. Combine the fruit in a mixing bowl
2. Depending on your taste, you can use a food processor on
a pulse setting to create the smoothness you desire.
3. Blend the fruit mixture and sugar in a saucepan.
4. Cook the mixture on a low heat setting for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the mixture is too thin, you may need to add ½ to 1 teaspoon of cornstarch
Combinations can be fun! Consider spreading this on cream cheese atop your favorite breakfast bread!
If desired, you can use a classic method of canning, or simply place in a covered glass jar and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
