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.
Sweet potatoes have 400% more Vitamin A in them than white potatoes. They also have more Vitamin C, fewer calories, more fiber and few net carbs than a white potato, despite having more sugar (source). By using sweet potatoes and baking them, you can enjoy your baked sweet potato fries with less guilt!
