Resolved Question

What do I call K*ffirwaatlemoen konfyt in english please?

I grew up with that word, am NOT white, and don't feel safe using it anymore. My gran used to make the best k*ffirwaatlemoen konfyt back in the day when she was still alive :)

Thank you No Boundaries. I seriously did not know it by any other name then the one I mentioned in my question. Now I know as well :)
