Jalapeno Strawberry Jam
March 30, 2011

Disappointed that this didn't gel like it should have, but I don't think it's the recipe's fault. Recipe calls for a 2-oz pkg of powdered fruit pectin, but I now see that Sure-Jell reduced the size to 1.75 oz, just like so many other companies are doing. They try not to increase price much, but they just reduce the size which can totally screw up recipes. The flavor on this jam is great. So your options are to use the 1.75 oz pkg and try to adjust the quantity of the other ingredients or open another pkg (at cost of $1.70) for the additional 1/4 oz and probably just pitch the rest of the opened pkg. 3.31.11 update: this firmed up overnight, so I'm upgrading the review to 5's now perfect!
