  2. Boil the potato chunks until soft.

  4. Press the mashed potato through a sieve to form a puree.

  7. Add the lime juice and mix well.
  8. Add the fresh ginger and mix well.
  9. Boil the mixture until it is very hot, stirring all the time.
  10. Transfer the hot mixture into sterilised jam jars.
  11. Half close the lids of the jam jars and place in a saucepan of boiling water. The water in the saucepan should come half way up the side of the jam jar).
