Hi Wendy, I have just read your recipes and they all sound wonderful and I'm looking forward to making them. We have a close circle of friends, who are all foodies like us and at Christmas I like to cook their Christmas gifts. So this year I have decided to make relishes, chutney and jams, and I would love to make your Chilli Jam and I was wondering how long this can be kept for in sterilized jars. Hope you and your family have a wonderful and great food packed Christmas. Looking forward to your reply.

I love this kind of sauce on Chicken. I guess it's not exactly for the jam and cream set : ) Thanks for the recipe.
