This was SO much fun!!
I was invited to have a "jam-off" against John Torode from Masterchef; the winning jam would be crowned the "Official Children in Need Jam 2011" (the recipe has been posted on the BBC here, for anyone to make their own and sell the jars to raise money for CiN)..
John made a classic plum jam and I made Pudsey Pear - a delicious spiced pear jam.
After putting our jams to the public vote, mine was crowned the winner! I was delighted and even got a hug from Pudsey Bear
You can see the show on iPlayer here (it starts 20 minutes in).
