I know jam's supposed to be pretty easy but I have yet to make a successful batch. Even when I follow the recipe on the pectin box they just haven't come out quite right. I needed a jam for this recipe I was making and was happy when I found this one. So simple, how could I go wrong? So here I went, and they came out pretty good! Maybe a little too sweet but overall I'm quite happy with the results. I found the recipe at allrecipes.com. Foolproof, I tell ya.
