I made this jam last night, my berries were very ripe so I only added about half of the sugar called for. I did mess up by not boiling it long enough. I canned it and all my jars sealed, hopeful that it would maybe thicken up during the night but it didn't. This morning I dumped it all back into the pot and cooked it until it reached 220 degrees and put it back into the jars and processed again..It turned out PERFECT!! ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!! I am now making another batch..I also forgot to mention that I made the first batch 16 cups of mashed berries, 7 1/2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of lemon juice.. note to self.....don't panic and quit too soon, keep stirring and boiling!! the first time around was kinda thick but still runny, would of been great on pancakes!! Thanks for the great recipe, this was my first jam making experience!
