Notes

This recipe makes 500ml of jam and I estimate a serving as a 20ml tablespoon of jam so that's how the calories are worked out here.
This jam will keep for up to a year, once opened store in the fridge and use within a month.
I have used the French method of letting the fruit macerate with the sugar overnight, this makes cooking quicker and jam taste better.
