Fill your kitchen with fresh flavors
(Page 4 of 4)
1 cup white sugar
2 cups minced dried jujube
1 cup water
2 cups wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Heat oven to 325°F. Grease square baking dish; set aside.
In large saucepan, combine sugar, fruit and water. Bring to boil; remove from heat, set aside and allow to cool.
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to fruit liquid. Pour mixture into prepared dish; bake until done.
3 pounds dried jujube
5 cups water
5 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Wash fruit, drain; prick each piece of fruit several times with a fork.
In large kettle, bring water, sugar and cornstarch to boil. Add fruit; simmer, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
Cool, cover and chill overnight.
The next day, bring syrup and jujubes to boil; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
With slotted spoon, lift jujubes from syrup and place slightly apart on rimmed pans. Dry in oven or sun for 2 or 3 days.
Check fruit frequently, turn occasionally until fruit looks like dried dates you see in the store.
Boil syrup from candied jujubes, uncovered, until reduced to about 2 cups. Use over pancakes and waffles. Store covered in refrigerator.
This recipe from Jane Rossen, of Binghamton, New York, isn’t strictly for jujube fruit, but it sounds good for any type of fruit. Jane writes, “The batter rises up through the fruit and makes a crust.”
