    What a wonderful recipe! I've made jams before, but this recipe is so easy, even a caveman could do it! Well, maybe I shouldn't say it quite that way, just in case there are any around! But it IS easy & at least this particular jam came out tasting great! I buy large bags of frozen berries at Costco & would love trying this recipe with their cherries & their blueberries! Thanks much for a great recipe keeper! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook recipe tag]

    A great way for me to use up frozen berries from last summer still in my freezer! (gasp!) lol I didn't think the lemon would be very noticeable - but was pleasantly surprised at the overall taste between the berries and lemon zest. This is a keeper! Made for the June 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
