Servings Per Recipe: 2
"Very good jam. I admit that I didn't use your measurements (I just had a few berries), but I based my recipe off of them. So thanks!"
"very good jam, I used strawberries an blackberries that I needed to use before they went bad so good. I halfed the sugar, personal preference and it was delightful."
"I had a bag of frozen strawberries that needed using up. Because there is no weight description in the recipe, I had to play by ear. After chopping them up, I got 300gms and used about 60gms of sugar and no lemon juice as I thought it was sour as it was. It turned about pretty okay. I will try it again and post a revised review then."
"I made this the other day as I had some strawberries that needed uses. It is super, and gave a bit to my neighbor, now she is making it and going to try mixed berry. Thanks Josh ! birdnest"
"wow- well this jam doesn't have to be 'out of the ordinary' to get 5 stars in my book- it's great, it was easy and that's that. I used fresh strawberries instead of frozen. I used 2 lbs. it is a little runny... but it's still fantastic!"
"It was okay. Not out of the ordinary. This recipe had so many good reviews, I thought I would try it. Sadly I think I wasted perfectly good strawberries. My sugar fiend eight year old even thought it was too sweet and a little ordinary."
"Great recipe! It was so easy to do! I changed it a bit according to the ingredients that I had on hand. I added a bag of frozen mixed field berries and changed the lemon juice to orange juice. "
"Great recipe! As others have mentioned I especially like the texture, the ease of preparation and the taste is devine. I use fresh strawberries, then seal the jars for the jelly cupboard. I usually get a little over 2 pints from this recipe."
"Wow this was good. Made this for the swap! Used fresh strawberries and served over multigrain toast and crumpets. Really, REALLY good. Better than any jam you could buy at the store. Thanks for a keeper!"
"This recipe tastes much more like fresh strawberries than any strawberry jam I have had in the past. I agree with triscuitnut about the consistency - it's just right. I was surprised that no pectin was needed, but it set fine without it."
"This was easy to make! I used fresh strawberries and it came out great. I especially like the consistency which is super for spreading on bread and great for ice cream if you heat it up first!"
