250g(total) of fruit - peaches, grapes and plums, chopped into bite sized pieces
1tbspstevia and monkfruit sweetener (I use this one)
1/2tbsptapioca flour (try to look for an all natural one, with no preservatives)
Place all the ingredients, apart from the tapioca flour, into a large Pyrex glass mixing bowl and stir until just combined.
Microwave on 90% power for 2 minutes 50 seconds.
Take the bowl out of the microwave, mash the mixture lightly with a fork (the peaches and plums should be pretty soft but the grapes will still hold their shape and that's ok) and add the tapioca flour. Mix until just combined.
Place the bowl back in the microwave and microwave on 90% power for 2 minutes 30 seconds.
Take the bowl out carefully (it will be hot) and mash the fruit again with a fork (the peaches and plums will be pretty much cooked out but you will still be able to see a bit of texture in the grapes - that's what you want). Let the jam cool down.
When cool enough to handle, pour the jam mixture into a clean glass jar, and let cool down completely (without a lid) on the kitchen bench. When completely cool, cover the jam jar tightly with a lid and store in your fridge. It should last at least 2 weeks.
I usually make twice the amount at once - so double all the ingredients, all in the same bowl and extend the cooking times a little if need be (or keep as they are and add another 30 seconds to a minute at the end if you think they fruit could be softer and mushier).I usually then try and fit it all into the same jar - this (or any other) jam doesn't last long at our house, as it goes onto my granola with plant-based yoghurt, the kids' toast, into cakes and other things and before we know it, it's gone! Doubling up is also a great option if you have a lot of fruit to use up or you have found some gorgeous ripe summer fruit for sale and bought way too much because it was so cheap (never happened to me, of couse). But first time up, you may want to keep to the amounts set out in the recipe. If you love the taste (as I am sure you will), then making extras isn't very hard!
