Everything "jelled" well, but I found this recipe to be almost sickly sweet.


Reduce sugar and destroy the batch. I know first hand.


Your Nutrition Facts are way off. You state that there are 1358 calories and 117 grams of carbohydrates in 1.4 oz of jam. There are approximately 28.35 grams per OZ. Therefore, there are appx. 36.69 grams in 1.4 OZ. Since there are 4 calories in each gram of carbohydrates, the total calories can not be more than 146.76. Also, since there are only 36.69 grams total in 1.4 OZ, you cannot have 117 grams of carbohydrates in a 1.4 OZ serving.


Do you still boil in a water bath canner?


Every recipe I have used calls for lemon juice……why or why not?
Thank you…Mary Ellen


Helps your jam to gel and keeps it bright colored.
