I used half of the sugar advised in the recipe as carrots and oranges were incredibly sweet. Taste 5/5 Colour 5/5 Texture 2/5 I hoped that the pectin in orange zest will be enough to make the jam a bit marmalade-ish, but it turned out way too runny. The liquid has separated from the pulp making it impossible to spread it over a toast without making a mess. I will definitely make the jam again, but next time I will add some pectin or use jam-sugar. - 21 Mar 2018
I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago, took 2 jars into work, nearly all gone so have been asked to make some more. What better results than that can you have.? Today I have experimented with Parsnip and Lemon, using half measures. Now wait for it to cool but looks good. I used 2 Lemons, but I think that if I make it again I might use 3 as I do like a really good lemon flavour! - 20 Sep 2017
