This is a dynamite recipe - tasty and making this jame in the slow cooker/crock pot is just the ticket during the red hot dog days of summer. I've begun adapting other jam recipes to the slow cooker it works so well. I did add 1/2 Tbl of vanilla to this recipe (actually vanilla powder, but it makes no difference) and the flavor is wonderful!
