    Great flavors and set up perfect, the colors are so intense, I'll be adding these to my Christmas gift baskets, I did make one change, added a tablespoon of finely chopped jalapeno as wanted pepper jam and felt these flavors would go perfect with it

    This jam is beautiful, I used the amount of fruit suggested but only 4 cups sugar, half of which was jam sugar so I didn't add pectin but also added a squeeze of lemon. The colour is gorgeous and although mine is not very thick due to less sugar content & less pectin used, it is very tasty all the same, Master 4 and Miss 9 both approve. I got 4 nice size jars out of this.

    Very tasty, and goes together quickly with just a few ingredients. Last year was the first time I had made any kind of jam or jelly and this was easy enough for a beginner with delicious results. The flavors really come through.
