Lazy girls guide to jammie treats with duerrs*


I have made two different quick and easy recipes with this yummy rhubarb and custard jam. It reminds me of those hard boiled sweets we had as a kid, I could go for some of those right now. Writing this post is making me hungry. I have made Jam hearts and Jam Fruit Tarts. Recipes are below. I hope you enjoy and let me know if you make any!

Jam Hearts

Ingredients:

  • Shortcrust Pastry (store brought, I'm lazy)
  • Duerrs Rhubarb and Custard Jam
  • Heart Cutters (Various sizes)
  • Baking tray

How to:

  1. Roll out the pastry and cut out your big hearts and smaller hearts
  2. Put grease proof paper on the baking tray
  3. Turn up the sides slightly on the big hearts so the jam doesn't leak in the oven
  4. Spread the jam over the hearts and put the smaller hearts on top (I made little slits so its prettier)
  5. Put in the oven on gas mark 5 for 10-12 minutes
  6. All done!
Mini Jam Fruit Tarts

Ingredients:
  • Shortcrust Pastry (Again, store brought)
  • Duerrs Rhubarb and Custard Jam
  • Handful of raspberries and strawberries
  • Circle cutters
  • Cupcake tray
How to:
  1. Roll out the pastry and cut out your big circles and smaller circles
  2. Grease the cupcakes trays with butter
  3. Put the big circle cut outs in the cup cake tray as a little bowl
  4. Cut the fruit into small pieces and put a few of each into each pastry 'bowl'
  5. Add a dollop of jam to cover the fruit and fill the pastry 'bowls'
  6. Make slits in the smaller circles (if you wish) and add them on top as a cover
  7. Pop them in the oven on gas mark 5 for 10-12 minutes
  8. All done!
I hope you enjoyed these quick and easy recipes, nice to make on a lazy day as they are fuss free.

This is the first jam in the UK to to be made specifically for home bakers. It's formulated specifically for domestic ovens, making burnt bottoms and chewy tarts a thing of the past and ensuring a professional finish that Mary Berry would be proud of!

It's out in Aldi now and they do have a really good range. I've never really been a jam on toast kind of person, but I am intrigued to try the orange marmalade or blackcurrant jam on a blueberry or cinnamon bagel for breakfast, mmmhmmm.  


What's your favourite thing to make with Jam, let me know in the comments below
