Recipe Notes

I am not entirely sure about how much this recipe made as I gave away a number of jars on the day it was made, prior to calculating the resulting volume.
If you would like a thicker jam, leave out the orange blossom water.
As with any food that is stored for a period of time you need to complete visual, smell and taste tests prior to consuming product in storage.
