will this mellow over age!And I don't think I boiled it long enough because it moves around in the jar (not that this has put my locust children off!)

How much sugar did you use! It should be kilo for kilo - 1 kg fruit to 1 kg sugar. I made mine very tart on purpose because I like it that way - I used half the sugar and boiled it for ages (about 45 mins) It has set very well and tastes great if you like it not so sweet but very plummy!

I don't think cooking time matters for tartness that is more about maturity of fruit and sugar content personally I add as little sugar as possible but then I do like them a bit tarty ;)

You could use it as a vanilla ice-cream topping.
