Although few of us today may want to devote a day to jam-making as our grandmothers did, it is still a pleasure to take an hour or two to turn a favourite fruit into a delicious jam. Once you open a pot of homemade jam, store it in the refrigerator and use within a few weeks.
The cup amount of sugar has been corrected to 6¾ cups which is equal to 1.5 kgs
Just checking the sugar amounts - 3 and 3/4 cups of sugar do no equal 1.5 kg. Could you tell me which one it is? I used the 3 and 3/4 cups and suspected it was too low. Ended up adding more all the way through, still dont think I added enough, but it seems like it will taste nice regardless - it was nice having a jam that was nice and tart - 08 Jan 2010
