      This was my first time canning, so I appreciate how simple and direct the instructions were. I had some trouble with step 4, as I did not know what the "gelling point" was, and consequently my first batch is more like a syrup than a spread. That is my own fault though, and my second batch came out just fine. I do have one complaint about the recipe itself, however. I used fresh picked berries, which were already very sweet and though the amount of sugar called for seemed excessive, I was unsure as to whether or not I could decrease it. As a result, the jam (and syrup;)) are super-duper sweet. Perhaps 4 cups of sugar is more appropriate with store-bought or frozen berries though. All in all I'm quite pleased, so thanks for a good beginner recipe!

      i used 3 pints of blueberries , 1 1/2 c sugar and the juice of half a lime, this was very easy to make and tastes fresh and summery. i just poured it into a tupperware container and refrigerated it
