    how long does this jam keep for once made and sealed?  -  12 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    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  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
