Presented by Jane Garvey. What do current guidelines on alcohol reveal about the way we view pregnant women? Sociologist Dr Ellie Lee and US Professor Janet Golden discuss the differing approaches to the issue in the UK and America. There are six young British women in the world top 250 compared with two young men, so when will they come good at Wimbledon? Annabel Croft discusses their chances. Food writer and cook Ghillie James transforms strawberries and other seasonal produce into jams, jellies and relishes. And with the US Food and Drug Administration Committee's rejection of Flibanserin, the latest drug with claims to improve sexual desire in women, why has women's sexual desire become so medicalised? Jane is joined by Sexual Psychologist Dr Petra Boynton and Dr Katherine Angel from Warwick University.

    Strawberry and other Jams

    RECIPE FOR MUDDLED BERRY JAM
    500g strawberries, not too ripe, hulled and halved.
    350g blackcurrants.
    350g raspberries.
    juice of 2 lemons.
    juice of 1 orange.
    1 kg jam sugar.

    Put all the ingredients into a bowl and stir together. Leave to macerate in a bowl for 2 hours, which will
    give the fruit time to release its juices.
    Transfer to a large saucepan and gently bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally for the next 10–15 minutes to dissolve the sugar and begin to soften the fruits, then raise the heat up to high and boil for 10–15 minutes, or until the jam has reached setting point.
    Leave the jam to settle for 10 minutes before spooning it into warm sterilised jars and sealing.

    Makes about 1.4 litres and keeps for at least a year.

    Ghillie James is the author of 'Jam, Jelly & Relish - Simple Preserves, Pickles & Chutneys & Creative Ways to Cook with Them'.
