Chilli Jam: Although I call this chilli jam, I don't mean by this that it's the sort of thing you'd spread on your toast at breakfast (though smeared inside a bacon sandwich, it could be a real help one hungover morning) but rather a chilli jelly - chelly? - that glows a fiery, flecked red and is fabulous with cold meats or a cheese plate. And just a small pot of it makes a gorgeous present.
We all love jams and jellies spread on a slice of bread, in pies, in crepes or on top of ice creams. The problem is that conventional jam recipes contain so much sugar and preservatives – it is unbelievable. Usually you have to add 1,5 pounds sugar to 2 pounds of fruit, cook the fruits for hours until you get a sugary mixture with no vitamins in it anymore.
