Mum’s Chilli Ginger Jam

This condiment is full of flavour but surprisingly mild because it uses the mild long red chillies, plus capsicum and tomato to give it its lovely colour. It can be kept in sealed jars in the fridge for three weeks, and it’s the perfect Christmas gift – goes great with roasted chicken or seafood.
