Sweet chilli jam

    55 min

    Adapted to use everyday cupboard content and not to peel my eyes whilst cooking though this jam is still hotly aromatic. Delicious as dip or jam to baste pork or chicken.

    1. Trim and coarsely chop chillies, onion, lime and garlic.

    4. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until sugar has disolved.
