Sweet Potato Jam……my new found love! It tastes incredibly good. It’s great with crackers or toasts. Sweet potatoes are nutritious, high in fiber and very good for health. I love them very much whether steamed, boiled, baked or made into desserts.
I was sitting in front of a few sweet potatoes and wondering what to cook this time. I had made Sweet Potato Donuts and Sweet Potato Cake. Suddenly I thought, ”What about Sweet Potato Jam?” It sounded great. Immediately I got down to giving it a go after remembering how we made egg jam, called ‘kaya’, in Malaysia. I was greatly thrilled when it turned out very delicious. Here’s my recipe to share.
500g sweet potatoes
200g coconut cream
Beat the eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl until the sugar dissolves.
Peel the potatoes, cut into smaller pieces and steam until cooked.
Mash it while it is still hot.
Add the coconut cream and egg mixture and mix well.
Put the sweet potato mixture into a double boiler to cook. Stir every now and then until the mixture thickens. Let cool completely.
This sweet potato jam goes great with crackers, bread or even steamed glutinous rice. It is even suitable for vegetarians. I would say this is a healthier jam which is high in fiber and nutritious. You can use less sugar if you like as the sweet potatoes are already very sweet.
