Nutty~Fruity Mix(yum yum jam of fruits n nuts)! 

It has been my seasonal recipe for several years but now I am sharing it so that can also make this magical jam at home.

It is a jam but I use it for milk shakes, curd smoothies, cake fillings and apple fried pies too.

It needs only one hour to make and damn easy too. This year I had no plans to make it but my kids started missing it a lot. Starwberries are pretty cheap now a days so finally I end up in making this nutty jam again. I made it because it tastes great with Marie biscuits cake too. 

But best use of it is for my both kids who start very early for their school so I mix this jam with milk or curd smoothies because it contains almonds and cashews too. So they reach school with a healthy n energetic breakfast sort of thing. 

Ingredients –

8-10 Cups of washed,cleaned and chopped in to halves strawberries

4 Big bananas over riped

1 Vanilla bean broken into small pcs

3 Cups of powdered almonds and cashews

4- After 10 minutes if mixing and stirring add powdered nuts.

5- Mix very well with a whisk and keep storring every 5 minutes till a drop of jamsets straight  like same shape drop in a glass of water.

6- When the qty of total ingredients reduces to half jam is done.
