I'm going to make Rudolph Pie (from Nigella Bites) for a food GCSE exam and wondered if I would be able to make the pie filing in exactly the same way, but then put it in a pastry case? If I do, how long would I need to bake it for? Thanks! Lauren

I've had 3 unsuccessful attempts at making the Coconut Macaroons (Domestic Goddess, p50) - they turn out way too wet and soggy even though I bake them for an extra 7 minutes. I'm not sure what's wrong - my oven temperature seems to work fine with all the other cakes. As I live in Singapore I have access to freshly shredded coconut. Is that the problem? Could it be packed with way too much fluid? Cheers!

Hi, I made my second batch of Chilli Jam (Christmas, p241) this year and all the diced chilli and red pepper seems to have set to the top of the jam. It is not running evenly through it. Why has this happened? Thank you!
Hi Team Nigella, I've just made the Chilli Jam and I suddenly realised that I used 350ml of cider vinegar and 250ml of white wine vinegar by accident, instead of all cider vinegar. Will this affect the taste? I hope not. Thanks! lyns123
