I absolutely love home made jam and this is my recipe for it. I’ve been making my own jam for years as I can’t get the same flavours from the shop bought ones. Also when you make your own jam you can adjust the sweetness to your liking so why not! It is a little time consuming however the end results are delicious also it lasts for a long time. Also i like the fact that it is completely natural and doesn’t have any additives or preservatives in it. AND IT IS SO TASTY!
