    This is a really good jam with an Indian twist. Just be careful while boiling it -- it shouldn't get too hard sticky. Take it off the flame before it thickens too much.  -  13 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a really nice recipe. I think it needs some preservative if you want to keep it for months, but i kept it in my fridge and it stayed fine for two months.  -  28 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
