Yummy Purple Jam

In South-TamilNadu, Beetroot Jam is first served as a Sweet to celebrate any festive or party atmosphere (in marriages,house-warming functions etc.).Try this Yummy home-made jam done with beetroot, watermelon and cherry as a Sweet-replacement.This Yummy Jam is so delicious and colourful that it can be made for get-togethers or family parties so quickly in 40 mins time.Its good for health since Beetroot has been added.Kids who avoid beetroot can have this given as jam.U can also do this w/o adding watermelon. Add 1 cup seedless grapes pulp and 1 cup chopped dates while making this Jam but this is a healthy option.U can omit or add any fruits with blending-taste(The taste and flavor should be liked by U after this fruit mix is done).U can even choose Strawberry or Blueberry to  do this Jam.Its up to u.This Jam goes well with Bread Slices,Idli, Indian breads, Biryani etc.Bon Appetit!.
