  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lemon
  • water
  • 500 g sugar
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes


  • Scrub the citrus fruits to remove any preservative wax and rinse the pepper and pat dry.
  • Remove the stalk from the pepper, cut into rough chunks and remove the membranes inside as this is bitter.
  • Slice the orange into about eight chunks and the lemon into 4 pieces.
  • Put all this fruit into a food processor and pulse till you get it all to form little pieces. Don't go all out and make it into a puree, you want to still have little chunks of fruit in there.
  • Put the fruit into a jug and measure out the same quantity in water.
  • Add the dried chilli flakes and put the fruit and water into a heavy based pan and bring it to the boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 20-30 minutes until the fruit is tender.
  • Remove from heat, cover with a clean tea towel and let it sit overnight.
  • Next day add the sugar to the pan and heat gently until this has completely dissolved.
  • Raise the temperature to a boil and let it bubble away until it reaches the setting point, about 10 minutes.
  • Spoon carefully into sterlised jars and add lids.
