I used only half the amount of sugar (but all the honey) and it turned out yummy! I am now kicking myself because I canned all of it thinking one of the jars usually doesn't seal. Can you imagine how disappointed I am that every last one sealed???? I'm betting by morning my hubbie will have opned a jar anyway. He really liked it! Thanks for sharing!

I thought this was a great recipe! I used about 6 cups of crushed berries, a little less than 4 cups of sugar, roughly a cup of honey, and lime juice (it was all I had) and a whole box of pectin. I did blend my berries to crush them which I had never done before and I don't think I'll ever do it again b/c it didn't fully thicken like it usually does. But it tastes delicious regardless! Thanks for a tasty recipe :)

I cut the sugar in 1/2 and barely used a cup of honey {didn't realize I had run so low}. This had a beautiful flavor - a lovely treat.
