"This made delicious jam. I have made other freezer jam and agree with jlbandlow, they set up differently."

"Great recipe. For those who said it didn't set up, freezer jam is a bit different from those you cook, so it won't set up like those."

"I even doubled the pectin and it still did not set up. Shouldn't this be a no cook item?"

"i really don't know if i would. second year in a row i made it and it not jell. was very precise in my measurements. i'm wondering if the lemon juice plus the 3/4 cups of water is too much liquid. should the pectin have been increased to 2 packages as suggested by "smstillinger.""

"Tasty jam, but it didn't get very thick. I think it could use 2 packages of pectin instead of 1. The infomation in the pectin box said to use 2 packages for 2 quarts of berries."
