  1. Step 1:

    Place all the ingredients into a large heavy based wide saucepan, stir together and bring to the boil.

  2. Step 2:

    Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally until thickened enough to leave a channel when a wooden spoon is dragged through the centre.

  3. Step 3:

    Fill the sterilised jars carefully. Top with a waxed disc and screw the lid on.

  4. Step 4:

    When cool label with the name and date. Store in a cool, dark place and keep for 2 weeks before eating. Refrigerate after opening. Tie with a ribbon and decorate festively to give as a gift. Eat within 6 months.
