how long does this jam keep for once made and sealed? - 12 Jun 2012


We have never made jam before and dreaded making a sloppy compote! But success has struck and it is a great jam to try! Everybody, start making jam! Our only criticism is that is was just a touch bland and tasted like it could do with a squeeze of lime or something zingy. Any ideas? - 30 Oct 2013
