Made my first lot of jams ever with this recipe. Made strawberry jam and the other batch was fig and cinnamon. Didn't have rapadura so just used white sugar. Very impressed how quick it was to make jam  :)

I have a question, if I utilized frozen berries rather than fresh berries, what type of adjustment if any would I have to do with the extra liquid.  Made my first batch today 170g strawberries (kids raided them a bit), 2 peaches and a black diamond plum to make up the 500g fruit.  Both children taste tested the residual after bottling, both loved it and my DS couldn't believe I had made jam.  ;D

Sorry, a bit slow in answering! I use frozen berries quite often and they work fine. You might just need to cook it for two minutes more. :)

I just made some lovely plum jam on the weekend as part of the easter basket present that my ds6 wanted to give both his current and last year's teachers.  They got jam, hot cross buns, hot chocolate powder (with cinnamon powder and mini marshmallows to compliment that), chocolates some with a cream like filling, and gingerbread easter egg biscuits, the whole lot home made.  I know his teacher from last year will love the treats, as she was lucky enough last year to get the chocolates and hot chocolate for easter and christmas.  ;D ;D

Hi Jo!
Can't wait to try this when my Thermie arrives! My 9 year old son will only eat Strawberry jam on his sandwiches or corn thins for his school lunch. We buy St Dalfours which is pretty good ingredient-wise, but at 2 bottles a week for $3.99 each it gets a bit pricey! Unfortunately, Strawberry season is pretty much over here on the Sunshine Coast ;(

Would frozen strawberries be any help to you Tez?
