There's two rambutan trees behind our house, and it's in season. They are so juicy since it's raining season. There's lots of them, my family didn't know what to do with them. Aside from eating it fresh, we have made a jar of jam out of it. Dad also sent some to his friend's shop. But the price's so low since there's so much of it in the market, it didn't worth the work. Since the fruit didn't last for long, i think we might need to turn the rest into rambutan jam. Do anyone have other idea?

Dad ask around if anyone care to buy, but nobody's interested. Since everyone here, mostly owned the tree too. Haha, rambutan cake is not a good idea. But that spark an idea. Maybe we can try making rambutan jelly. Thanks.

Yup, like the way to make lychee or coconut jelly. Looks like it calls for a trip to the shop.

Rambutan is sweet and juicy. It is good if we can  - Rambutan is sweet and juicy. It is good if we can also make jam out of it.
This is the first time I heard of rambutan jam. Care to share the ways how you did it? The rambutan is also in season here. Everywhere we can see the fruit is on sale. It is good if the excess fruit can be turned into jam so that it won't go to waste. To dry it to preserve maybe is also a way.

I'm more than happy to share First, remove the outer skin. Then, use a knife to cut the white, juicy flesh from the seed. Did it to the rest of your rambutan. Then, blend them with some water, just enough to make blending easier. Pour the mashed rambutan into big pot on low heat, and stir until it thickens. After that, pour in the sugar. The ratio that I'm using is 3 cup of mashed rambutan to a cup of sugar. Stir some more, then let them cool off before putting them in jar or bottles. It's easy, and you can use the same recipe for other fruits.

We also have a rambutan tree in farm. There a lot of rambutan fruit we cannot take it all. Some we eat some we give to a people. That is a great idea to make rambutan as a jam. How about if you make rambutan as a juice? :D

It is great to preserve it into jam. The rest it may rotten, so you can chopped into small pieces. Then you can use as a composition on the soil.

Yeah, we don't know what to do to preserve them other than turning them into jam. Look's like we'll just do that.
