This is really good. I would rather not add pectin, so this works well for me. I couldn't get the jam to go up to 220, so I put it on a bigger burner, and that's when I burned the jam. It was burned only on the bottom, but it made the flavor not quite as good. It set perfectly (only ever got to 216), so I think maybe my (new) thermometer is off. This has a wonderful flavor, and it is quick and easy to make. I am making more tonight. Thanks for the recipe. (I used strawberries that were starting to look a little tired, and the jam was awesome!) Hubby raved about it (when he tasted it prior to the burn). So I made another batch. It is really good jam. At the last, I poured the jam into five 1/2 pints, and then I put the remainder on the stove and added one tablespoon of bourbon. I thought that the flavor was interesting, and we ended up with two jars of Bourbon Strawberry jam. I will be interested to taste it once it sits for a few weeks, and we get to taste it. (Tasted great today!) This is a good, easy recipe. Try it. You'll like it.
