I made this yesterday with strawberries we picked fresh at a local farm. There seems to be a step missing from this recipe, though. After you stir the boiling water into the strawberries, you're supposed to keep stirring constantly for three minutes, not just let it sit there. Otherwise I made this recipe as is, using the 4 cups of sugar. Yes, it makes a sweet jam, so if you don't like sweetened jams, don't try this. If you are into more of a pure fruit spread, this is not for you. However if you have a big sweet tooth such as myself, then this is for you! And it's an easy way to introduce yourself to making jam. You can also use blackberries, blueberries, peaches, raspberries, cherries.
