Chilli jam is super hot and you will find a little goes a long way. If you want to decrease the heat dramatically, remove the seeds from the chillies. The jam is best poured into small jars, it will keep indefinitely if the jars have been sterilised correctly. Store in the fridge once opened.

- 2 1/4 cup (500g) caster (superfine) sugar
