Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modified recipe - tastes awesome! When reading this recipe I thought 7 cups of sugar was way too much. I cut the recipe back to 5 cups and it turned out fine. The taste is awesome. We have the fresh berry flavor that isn't overpowered by too much sweetness. We also used red raspberries. Tastes great on ice cream and waffles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes great! 4 cups of fresh berries yielded 2 cups of mashed berries. I followed the proportions, using lemon juice and butter. Jam is soft set, and totally delicious!
