I made this last week and opened a jar this morning for breakfast. It turned out beautiful. It tastes delicious and it gelled up just as the recipe said. After the jar had sealed and cooled, I placed it in the refrigerator which must have helped gel a little more. My family really loved this jam. This recipe is going into my Keeper File. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe.
