Plum jam is very easy to make. I know because I made some and I'm not any sort of cook. It sets very easily and is scrumblicious! I love stewed plums and custard too.:P:P:P

The Red and Green Pepper jam sounds just right.

I'll have to make some of my chilli jam to go with the cheese and crackers.

I have tried strawberry jam here for the last three years all a disaster as I couldnt find Pectin. However I have picked up a tip recently. Add a peeled, cored and diced apple, green if possible. You wont taste the apple in the finished product but apple being high in pectin it will set the jam.

A clever trick Tony :)
Regarding the red and green pepper jam, you have to be so careful here as those peppers can often turn out to be hot chillies! Yes, we have been caught a few times :x

Ooh, just beat me to it, Tony! And make sure your fruit is as fresh as possible, especially strawberries. :P Pectin is the magic ingredient.
