    Grated ginger adds a nice texture, as well as a gentle spicy flavour to tasty plum jam. I was amazed how easy and quick this jam is. Not much steam in the kitchen or washing up either.

    We can't always find marmalade easily here in Brittany so I've started making my own - usually from what's in the fruit bowl! It doesn't last long because it's usually scoffed each morning with croissants or baguette and butter. It's THE easiest recipe and I'm now converting our French neighbours to marmalade. Makes 4 x 400g jars
