Two Way Science students create Yaminyarri Jam
Due to its high level of vitamin C, the Yaminyarri is also a bush medicine.
Our Two Way Science students have recently completed the second stage of their learning by creating Yaminyarri jam (Gubinge jam) from the Yaminyarri that was collected toward the end of the Mangala season. Coupled with a freshly made damper to put the jam on, the students shared a delicious morning tea amongst teachers and visitors. Everyone found the Yaminyarri jam unique and delicious.
500 g yaminyarri
250 g sugar
2 star anise
50 ml water
zest and juice of 1 lime
Place ingredients in a saucepan and bring to boil.
Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Take off the stove and allow it to cool slightly.
Pass through a big sieve, or colander, with the back of a wooden spoon, separating the flesh from the seed.
Put the jam into jars and refrigerate.
