I made Nigella's lovely Yule Log (Christmas, p191) with great success - it looked exactly like the picture in the book and tasted lovely. However my kids didn't like the bitterness of the dark chocolate in the frosting. Can this be made with milk chocolate, or do you have any other suggestions please? Many thanks.

I would like to make the Chilli Jelly from Christmas (p241) and don't have jam sugar but I do have bottled Certo and preserving sugar. How much would you suggest I add and when during the cooking process? Regards Michelle.
Hi, I'd like to make the Chilli Jam from Nigella Christmas, but I don't know if I can find the jam sugar where I live. What can I use instead of it?

I can't find a raw gammon ham where I live (Victoria, Australia) so although I would really like to try your Ham in Coca Cola recipe (How To Eat, p325) at Christmas I don't think I can get the right ingredient. Is it possible instead to boil an already cooked ham in the cola? Thank you for your time.
What can I substitute for the treacle in the Ham in coca cola recipe? Buddigirl
