Caution, this recipe is flawed. I followed it exactly, and only after my jam was runny and didn't set did I realize the recipe does not include an important step. The missing step is between #2 and #3. As written the recipe says add the pectin to the fruit (with no mention about heating/cooking) in step 2, then in step 3 you add sugar and bring it to a boil. The recipe would be fixed if you add words to step #2 saying "and heat to a boil." After my Jam did not set, I read the instructions on the Ball Low Sugar Pectin package and it stresses that you put the pectin in with the fruit and heat those together BEFORE adding any sugar. This recipe does not say that. My guess is if you did heat up the pectin with the fruit (before sugar) it may work fine, which is probably what most of those who rated this recipe highly likely did. I have jars of strawberry syrup instead. Oh well....
