Litchi and rose jam recipe

Litchi and rose jam is a delightful flavour combination – sweet, light and refreshing! The jam-making process might sound intimidating, but it’s actually very easy and just takes time. This jam is delicious served with Camembert or Gorgonzola on crusty bread. This will keep for up to 3 weeks in the fridge.
