For some reason, mine didn't firm up. Instead of jam, I had strawberry topping. It was yummy topping.

I chose this recipe based on the reviews. I wanted strawberry preserves that I could use for other things and not just toast or biscuits. I wanted a softer outcome and this fit the bill perfectly!! I will be using this as topping for ice cream... drizzling over cakes and other desserts. It will come in handy when fresh strawberries arent in season. Thank you MizzNezz! (see sometimes "bad" reviews can be a good thing!!) :)
