How nifty! While I’m not a big Amarula aficionado this sounds like a tasty treat.

Patrick the two of you have become expert jam makers. It looks absolutely delicious, I can just imagine that beautiful golden marula jam on a hot fresh bun. Yum yum.

Mmmh! Sounds delicious.
I hope there will be some of this nice jam left for breakfast in August.

Wonderful story Dan, and how fortunate you were to have a teacher like Dorance show you how to make Marula jam. I love the taste of this fruit but unfortunately, there are no Marula trees in Northern California!

Looks good! Is the jam served in the camps? I don’t think I’ve ever eaten it. On the other hand, I’m still rather partial to the Marula fruit in Amarula!

Looks awesome and truly delicious… Enjoy.

I never knew Marulas grew edible fruit. How about after step 5 add some yeast and try some homebrew with it.

Hello Patrick and Dorence, Thank you both for this article how one makes marula jam… Interesting to see and read how to do it! Next time I have to try it! I don’t think I did that when I visit Londolozi. I have now found a new reason to come! 😃
Thank you for sharing!
