Success with Lilly Pilly

I'm pleased with my Lilly Pilly jam - or more correctly jelly.  I look forward to trying it on my breakfast toast!  It was messy to prepare - there were all sorts of bits in the bowl of fruit when I picked it.  One tiny worm too which was relegated to the bin.  I hand picked each piece of fruit - threw away some that looked overripe, damaged or with suspicious holes.

I've made just two jars of it - and I think I may make some more before the fruit season is over as there are plenty more on one tree.  I tasted it - rather different taste than I expected.  Rather peppery sweet if that makes sense.  I'll give the small jar to someone as a gift - not sure who just yet - and use the larger one myself.
