Jam Turnovers

This week’s CKD friendly recipe from the renal dietitians from Salford Royal is for Jam Turnovers, a sweet treat!

Serves 4.


  • puff pastry – 225g (9oz)
  • jam – 225g (9oz)- choose strawberry/ raspberry jam
  • egg white – 1
  • caster sugar – 25g (1oz)
  • double cream – 4 tablespoons

Cooking method

  1. Roll out the pastry to a thickness of 0.5cm (¼ inch). Using a cutter, cut into 10cm (4inch) rounds. This is the size of a saucer or small side plate which will work if you don’t have access to a cutter.
  2. Roll each round until slightly oval 12 x 10 cm (5×4 inches). Moisten the edges, using a pastry brush dipped in water.
  3. Place the jam of your choice in the centre of each oval. Fold over and seal firmly- prod the sides of each pastry fold with a fork to ensure it is sealed properly. Brush with egg white and sprinkle with caster sugar.
  4. Place each fold with the coated, sugar side up on a greased baking tray. These are now ready to be baked for 15-20 min the oven (220 ºC, Gas mark 7, 425 ºF)
  5. Serve with a dollop of double cream.
