I found this really easy to make and it seemed much simpler than most jam/jelly recipes. I got a lovely clear jelly and it tastes lovely too - 10 Dec 2012
Followed to the letter - far too sweet and didn't set. - 03 Aug 2013
Ok this is not a bad recipe but it has way too much sugar I used 2/3rds of the advised and it was plenty sweet. I also recommend adding a small amount of water to the berries (I did 1350g of berries and added 100ml) just to get them going. Next time I will also strain the berries and then add the sugar and boil. They are so full of pectin that they started to set in the muslin before half the liquid got through and I really struggled to strain it. The result though is delicious! - 05 Aug 2013
