About this recipe: I made this for the Royal Wedding, and being the wedding of the century - any old strawberry jam would not do. Instead, taking some inspiration from my favourite cocktail, the "Red Lady", I decided to do a strawberry and elderflower jam. Enjoy!
For something special, try using St Germain elderflower liqueur instead of the elderflower cordial.
For a jam that is lower in sugar, use 200g sugar. Then replace the remaining 200g sugar with Splenda, using the amount as directed on the Splenda packet.
I was a bit leery about trying the low sugar version of this (with 50% Splenda) as most low sugar jams that I've made had added pectin to help them set. But I shouldn't have worried at all! Even with the low sugar, this jam set perfectly, and became a lovely clear colour when done. It tastes brilliant too, much better than any other low sugar jam I've tried before. Truly worth 5 stars. - 13 Aug 2011
