Thanks for the input guys :) Your ideas sound great!
I've been making :
Sweet and tangy pickled beets
Bread and butter pickle
Sweet and spicy pickled onions
Pickled peppadews
Papaya Jam
Rose Jelly
Wholegrain spicy mustard
Chunky chilli and onion sauce
4 kinds of hot sauce
Preserved lemon
Curried greenbeans
Apricot jam
Fig jam
Apple brandy jam
Peach jam
tomato jam
Balsamic Onions
Rose geranium syrup
and a Spicy vegtable pickle.
So far the beetroot in Balsamic, apple brandy jam, apricot jam and all the chilli relish and sauces are the most popular. Wil definitly try some of the pickles and jams everyone mentioned.
Even thought I've only had possitive feedback I still want to go with only the most liked preserves. It's a bit hard to make a huge variety.

I haven't met a preserve that I don't like, also jellies, jams, pickles. I do not like butters. I know some people say how much they like the fruit butters but they always look muddy to me. I like mine sparkly and clear.

My gf likes to pickle cabbage in a jar full of vinegar, and some cracked pepper just to give it a bit of a kick. It is always nice to eat especially with something horrendously spicy
