    what did i do wrong?? i am an experienced jam and jelly maker using commercial pectin. this recipe would not gel! i ended up using commercial pectin and adding more sugar which affected the taste. i researched and found that once apples (or any high pectin fruit) ripen they don't have the high concentrate of pectin. USE SLIGHTLY UNDERRIPE APPLES!!!!! ended up not tasting good and feedback from tasters was don't waste my time. - 29 Sep 2008

    Something else. This recipe has an excellent flavour. One thing I found was that 24 kiwis makes more than 3 cups of mashed berries. Mine made about 5 cups. Also - I had to cook longer than 30 minutes. - 29 Sep 2008

    This is more like preserves. If you want jam, I would suggest using commercial pectin, instead of the apples. The flavour was exceptional. Very good recipe. - 29 Sep 2008
