Chilli be Jammed

The results are in. Four, 300ml jars of chilli jam. Haven't had a taste yet but I did find out this little tit bit of info when I was way beyond turning back. We would avoid using long red Finger or Cayenne chillies as they are also quite hot (30,000-50,000 SHU).

In Nigella's recipe she used, Dutch red chillies. Dutch red chillies have a heat rating of between 2,500 and 8,000 Scoville heat units (SHU). The Scoville scale is used to measure the "hotness" different types of chilles.

Oh well, I'll just have to use it sparingly.
