This is SO GOOD! I made using fresh strawberries with a little sugar added for sweetness instead of the jam. I chopped them into small pieces and then mashed them and added the sugar. I didn't add the juice to the mix but mixed in the strawberries with the mixture. This gets rave reviews of 5 plus stars each! Yum Yum! Thank you for this recipe Kathy-Lynn!
