The luscious berries in this recipe are loaded with pectin, a type of fibre that can help lower cholesterol; they also contain cancer-fighting ellagic acid and carotenoids.
I have made this pudding over the years using fresh fruit and instead of using jam, I add a red jelly, made with only 1 cup water. I do not then need to press the fruit down. Just as tasty!! - 26 Dec 2009
