My sister came round with her daughter who had just made a batch of ginger jam truffles during her morning outing and I was invited to try one. I had been thinking about which flavour chocolates to put in my chocolate boxes this Christmas and these, ginger and jam truffles, were soooooooo good I knew I had to, immediately, set about making a recipe for ginger truffles using jam as a sweetener.

I wasn’t sure at first which flavour jam to use. You know how much I love St Dalfour Jams, and I find them an incredible ingredient in my baking, so I popped round to Sainsbury’s to check their shelves – they always have a pretty good array of Dalfour Jam. Low and behold I spotted one I have never seen before – Cranberry with Blueberry!

What could be better – especially at this time of year! I must confess that I bought three jars.

Well of course, firstly, you have to check that it tastes good before you use it (incidentally it was DIVINE!!!) and secondly, I immediately decided it would be the perfect jam for a Christmas orange and cranberry Bakewell tart I have had in mind for a little while now! Win win win!!! :D

The truffles were incredible and will definitely be the star of this year Christmas chocolate boxes. I also tried a few with a couple of drops of lemon extract added and they were amazing too! I’m pretty sure orange will be a winner as well!
