Chinese Lantern Jam

Chinese Lantern Jam

Most people are familiar with the ornamental red variety of Chinese lantern, but Kamikonai grows a special edible orange variety. The sweet and sour flavor has been described as a cross between a tomato and a plum. It is affectionately called the “love thief” variety for its ability to make instant fans out of those who try it.
Rich in vitamin C, the “love thief” Chinese lanterns are also a nutritional spread for breads and cakes.
