STEF: This is a great recipe for batch-making and freezing for future use. Remember: Herbs, herbs, herbs maketh the tasteth. Also, if you don't have a rice cooker, I really recommend it - it has made our life so much easier (and washing up so much quicker!!) for the no-fuss cooking of any grains.
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.
