    Tip/Hint: To test place a small plate in freezer to chill. when jam begins to thicken place a small amount on the plate, if it is slightly set and does not run on plate when tilted its ready. If its still runny on the plate, cook another 1-2 min. then Test/check again. Great on toast, even Ice crean as a topping. . . yummmy! PHOTO: this is my own photo, we like our a bit more chunky.
