NUTRITION FACTS FOR ONE SERVING
Average cost for one recipe: $2.10
Slice fruit and add to small pot over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes. Add berries and sugar, and cook over medium-low heat 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Peel a piece of lemon rind. Remove any excess white part with knife, as anything but yellow rind can result in bitter flavor. Add slice of lemon peel to pot and cook a further 10-15 minutes or until thickened. Pour into a shallow dish, and spread along the bottom so the jam cools to room temperature. Put in clean jar or bowl and keep in fridge for about 10 days.
