Hello Candocook

Maybe u call it jam. Here in Germany, people call it compote.
U spread it on bread alone, or with butter.

Hello Lulu

I tried your idea, of the coconut and cardamon.
It turned out fantastic. I did it as an experiment,
but I am delighted, with the results.

Hello Lulu

It is difficult to post my quantities, since I never measure of weigh anything.
I just add what I think looks right.
But put very little water in(or maybe none at all), unless u are using sugar, instead of honey. Plenty of honey sweetness is needed to balance the bitterness of the limes. And the honey makes the preserve set very well, if u dont add much water.
