  • Thanks so much for the mixed berry recipe. I have small ammounts of berries so this is a great recipe to mix them.

  • If one cannot eat sugar what would be a good replacement for this jam - can one use a sweetner like Natvia?

  • Hi Dael, we haven't tried this recipe using a sweetener. If you give it a go, we would love to hear how you get on. Thanks, Tui Team
