Great. I made a plum jam instead of strawberry. Just like the one I used to make when I was a teenager. I just added some lemon juice to it. Thanks

Very good! This was my first attempt at jam-making andd it went very well. I made this with frozen strawberries and gave them as gifts. Make sure your pot is big enough it expands on the second boil. You probably could cut back on the sugar if you wanted to, its quite sweet, but I like it as is.
