....and I Made Even More Jam......
I found a recipe for Christmas Jam, and really needed to make some. Then I read the recipe. It called for 5 lbs. of sugar! Surely that was a type-o and they meant 5 cups? I e-mailed the blog author and she confirmed that it was indeed 5 lbs.......yikes! But....she mentioned that someone else had made the jam using low sugar pectin and much less sugar, so I decided to give it a try after all. I used 48 oz. of frozen strawberries, 1 lb. of frozen cranberries, 2 boxes of low sugar pectin, and 5 cups of sugar. After defrosting the berries, I chopped them in the food processor, and left them a bit chunky. My taste tester liked it! So.....I will have to make some more!
