English Jam in very real Halloween nightmare

Slow Jammin' responds to new Government regulation that will affect sugar levels in jam

We've all seen the headlines this morning. Whilst spreading jam of a much loved and historic jelly-like consistency onto my bagel, I was shocked to hear that the Government has left jam lovers in a sticky situation. Not content with Halloween being scary enough, the Government has dragged jam makers into a very real nightmare.

Jam to lose its firm wobble

First it was the relentless documentation of Kate Middy's post-baby wobble-free volley-ball belly. Now jam too is having its wobble called into question.

When will society stop judging things by their looks?

Lib Dem MP Tessa Munt expressed this will change the face of British breakfasts, and I must say, she has a point. There are other ways, of course, that you can get a firm wobble:

  • Pectin
  • High fructose corn syrup
But as a novice jam-maker, these don't sound very appetising to me.

Take the edge off the news and make some crafty Halloween jam jars.
