Making Jam in the Microwave

This is a book review for a great book which tells you how to make jam in the microwave.   The beauty of it is that you can make just one pot if you like!  Last year I made a variety fo exotic jams and gave them to friends as Christmas gifts.   Living around here is handy because our local shops sell a good variety of fruits like loose dates and figs.  The book also gives recipes for delicious chutneys, spiced cheeses, and frozen summer fruits.
