    MY MUM MADE SOME IT WAS LUSH  -  08 Aug 2011


    Holy fricken sugar! This recipe was way too sweet..The recipe on the box of pectin that I used said to use 1/2 as much sugar for the same amount of fruit, so I'll probably try that next time.  -  24 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've made this once before and it turned out on the runny side. This time I drained my crushed strawberries slightly and cut back on the water by a few tablespoons. While filling the jars it was already beginning to "set up". This recipe filled 11 four ounces jars. Nice way to have strawberries the entire year!  -  21 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
