Black Plum(Jamun) Lemonade


Jamun or Indian blackberry is also called Jambu in Gujarati, Jamun in Hindi & Marathi, Perinnaral in Malayalam, Jamo in Oriya, Neredum in Tamil, Kalajam in Bengali, Neereedi n Telugu and Black plum or Java plum in English.
I removed the seeds, crushed them a bit, poured water and let them steep for an hour in the fridge. Then I added a dash of lemon, sugar and a touch of salt. It was wonderfully refreshing. The color gets more intense when the fruit becomes fully ripe.

Ingredients
  • Ripe Jamuns(Black Plum) -10 no’s
  • Sugar -1/4 cup
  • Lemon -1 no
  • Salt -1/2 tsp
  • Water -1 cup (adjust to ur preference)

Method
1. To use the black plum as Juice you will have to remove the seed, which can be a bit tedious. Some come out easier when pressing through the fingers (like olives), some simply don't want to part from their cores

2. Once the berries are decored, add them to a mixer and throw in the water and sugar. I always add salt, sugar for the taste, but you can always leave the sweetening out. A teaspoon of lemon juice can be added to enhance taste.


Important facts
1. Every part of the jamun tree is said to have medicinal uses:  its fruit, its seed, bark and leaves. The fruit has also rich in manganese, zinc, iron, calcium, sodium and potassium.
2. While the fruit is rich in antioxidants like tannic and oxalic acids, the bark has digestive properties. The seed is prescribed for diabetes. The fruit is packed with Vitamin C and minerals such as Calcium,
