Hi, I want to make the Chilli Jam but your recipe states 150gm of chillies which is a awful lot of chillies along with 150gm sugar. Why so many? Most recipes say only 4-6 chilles. Also I live in Spain and can't buy either jam sugar or pectin powder, but I can buy pectin liquid. Will this work? Many thanks Gail.

I've made Nigella's Chocolate Key Lime Pie many times and love it. However, I was wondering if the 175ml of lime juice could be replaced by either lemon juice or lemon curd as I have a surplus of both I'm hoping to put to good use. Obviously then it becomes more of a lemon pie than a lime pie. I'm just wondering if it would still taste good and also for any insight into quantities.

I'm making the Beer Braised Pork Knuckles and was wondering do you taste the beer in the pork after cooking? My wife does not like the flavour of beer. If so, what could I replace it with? Thanks, Trent,

I would like to make the Banana Bread. The ingredients given in your recipe are easily available except sultanas which I am unable to find. Please could you explain what they are and where I may be able to find them? I'm from India.

Hi, why do you score a cross in the top of wholewheat or plain soda bread before baking? Secondly, do we need to wait for the dough to rise before baking?
