Day 9: Frangipane Zespri® Golden Drops

On this day of the Zespri® 14-Day Daily Scoop of Amazing Challenge, we'll have to celebrate Hari Raya by dressing up all in green... clothes, make up, manicure, accessories... you get the gist? Since we have BoiBoi, we try not to expose ourselves in the public errmm well for security reason. I've been in the IT industry for 20 years, it still creeps me up on the nasty things that people can do. So no faces but we were game just to show our sizes in green tops hahaha

Day 9 Challenge

We're still good on having our daily dose of Zespri® kiwifruits since they're packed with nutrients and fibres that our body need. Head on to for the detailed information of the nutrients and benefits.
For today, I'm making ahead some delicious and cute cookies so that I can pack in inside a Raya hamper. These are like Jam Drops but the lux version since it uses almond meals and filled up with Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit Jam. Capt'n Hook likes it a lot and said it should go well with a cup of Earl Grey tea.

Day 9 Frangipane Zespri® Golden Drops

First, I've made a jam with 3 of my over ripe Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruits. Just a little note on the amount sugar needed. Since SunGold is sweet but could be slightly sour but again sourness is quite subjective. What I did was started off with 70g sugar and add in gradually in 10g until it has reached the sweetness I liked. So in total, I've needed 100g but could go on till 120g if you prefer the jam to be sweet.
