Not only is this easy to make, but its incredibly tasty!!! I think you could put any kind of fruit in there that you would like. I followed the recipe exactly, however, I added sugar to taste. I put the first cup in, tasted it and it was perfect so I didn't add anymore. I think this depends on how ripe your fruit is, so I would suggest adding the sugar and then tasting it before adding more.
The consistancy is thinner than some jams, but I love it that way. It is thinner than some jams but thicker than syrup.
This is the first time I have ever made jam because I thought it would be too hard. I am going to use the recipe to make more. If I would have known it was this easy, I would have been making my own all along.
