Used different ingredients. Instead of this I used the recipe from the American website and it produced very good results. I found that the amount stated here is enough to make 4 good sized jars which is to much for me so instead here is my recipe. 12 Kiwi fruits, peeled and mashed 60ml Apple, Pineapple or Pear juice ( I just use whatever is on hand) 30ml Lemon Juice 3 Small Apples or 2 large ones. 400g sugar and then the recipe as stated here. - 13 Jun 2010


Tastes ok, but I lost the beautiful green colour as soon as I started cooking the fruit. Now a dirty yellow colour - not very appetizing. Any ideas? - 20 Feb 2010


Altered ingredient amounts. I added more lemon juice because I found it too sweet initially. It all depends on the ripeness of the kiwi fruit of course and personal taste. I also cooked it for longer because I found it a bit runny. - 25 Jan 2010
