I enjoy the comments from seasoned canners as well as questions from people who are new to learning how to enjoy their fruits and berries year round. Your advice is patient and helpful for everyone. I remember long ago when I didn't know what a food mill was.
The notes say the jam can be frozen for up to 3 months at the top and then for up to 6 months at the end.
Which is correct? I want to try making this.
I think there's an error here; 4 cups of fruit and 1 cup of sugar cannot possibly make 4 pints of jam. A pint is 2 cups hence 4 would be 8 cups of jam. I believe that you mean it makes 4 CUPS of jam. But wouldn't it be great if the fruit doubled in volume? LOL!
Hi, Denise. Thanks for your feedback. You’re right about the yield being off. This recipe will make about two 6-ounce jars of jam.
