A very tasty and sweet jam that is great on breakfast scones, toast or bagels and terrific for evening crackers and brie cheese. Our family from Corfu, Greece, has been making this for many years.
* Instead of oranges you can use small kumquats quatered and add a 1/2 cup of orange juice. This recipe is also very good and the chunkyness of the kumquats give it a special taste.
* The fruit preparation is the most time consuming part (probably 15 minutes or so) but the payoff is worth it.
* The food colouring is essential because no matter what else you do the kiwi fruit has a natural tendency to turn brown and dirty looking and very unappetizing when cooked. Using the food colouring gives the jam a much nicer orange colour.
* The magic of this jam is, it does not need to be refrigerated for weeks after opening the jar, but I bet you the jar will be empty long before that time! Have fun and good eating.
