Strawberry Freezer Jam
This is a standard no-fail freezer jam. Be sure to re-measure your crushed berries and only use 2 cups. It's true, you cannot reduce the sugar, just like you can't change the amount of flour or baking soda in a bread recipe. But you can add 1 tsp of fresh finely grated lemon peel (or 1/2 tsp dried peel) to get the tang you're looking for.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire
Great recipe. I made a quadruple batch for a large party. I cut down the apple and pear by 1/4, and substituted orange juice for the water and oranges. Also left out the nuts in case of an allergy. Honestly I wish I'd cut the apple, pear, orange flavor, and cinnamon in half, in order to maintain a stronger cranberry flavor. Also, I cooked it uncovered for 10 minutes after bringing it to a boil just like a "traditional" cranberry recipe and it set-up great.

Ammonia Cookies
Good recipe. Mine needed significantly more flour to make dough stiff enough to drop. I also had to bake for longer, but I tend to make large cookies so maybe that is why. They did not get golden - just browned on the bottom but they were done. I also added a bag of mini-choco chips which I highly recommend!
