Very easy to make and made the house smell like Christmas! Tastes pretty good too. I didn't bother with the muslin bag bit as I quite like the little crunch of the mustard seeds. I used ground allspice as I couldn't get hold of the whole ones. The hardest bit was preparing all the plums! but once cooking it was just a question of waiting and giving it a stir now and then. Definitely worth paying that bit extra for preserving sugar as you don't get all the scum on top. - 24 Aug 2016
