Keywords: Lemon and Chilli jam

1) I used Robinsons no sugar added Lemon squash, Any other brands can be used

2) I used Bark Chillies. These can be substituted with Thai Birds Eye Chillies or one or two Scotch bonnets

3) The amount of Xylitoal that should be added should be a third of the weight of the total ingredients (Xylitol included) . The weight of the fruit should be the peeled weight

4) Agar gets added at the rate of 1.5 teaspoons per kilogram of marmalade . It takes about a week to set firmly.
