I had the same problem with it not setting up. In other jam recipes you usually bring the fruit to a full rolling boil after you add the pectin and boil for a minute. I emptied all my jars and brought it back to a boil and add about a tsp of powder pectin and boiled another minute, This helped and it set up better. Next time I make it, I will boil it for a minute after I add the pectin and then ladle it into jars. Otherwise it was really good.
Does this use frozen strawberries with or without sugar added?
It tastes wonderful, however it didn't jell. The small amount left over and poured into a dish not processed ,did jell. Could the processing in the boiling water bath have anything to do with the problem ? I really wanted to make this for gifts ! What is processed & in the jars, is to watery. Any suggestions ???

I made and canned this jam and gave it out as part of homemade Christmas gifts last year. My family loved it!
