Super Easy Microwave Strawberry Jam

Recipe by  

"This quick and easy recipe makes a small batch of jam that is not too sweet with fantastically bright berry flavor. When I couldn't find the original recipe from 20+ years ago, I created this simple one with just 2 ingredients. Mixture is very hot, so use care when stirring. Refrigerate leftovers if there are any! Tastes great on toast and English muffins or spoon while warm over ice cream. Blueberries can also be used in place of strawberries."

I cooked for 2 mins on high in a dish with a lid , and it boiled over, splattering all over the walls of the microwave, even with a lid on it. I took it out of the oven, transferred it to a small saucepan, and finished it on top of the stove. Don’t know what happened here and I’m the first reviewer, so I don’t want to discourage others from trying. I don’t have a “mega-watt” microwave. I'm giving this 2 stars based solely on the taste and the fact that it was eaten.
