    I have used two of your jam recipies and they are wonderful.
    The strawberry jam is really made it with the acidic lemons to cut out the sweetnesss.
    My rasberry jam had a little catastrophy when our jelly muslin fell apart and a big mess appeared!
    Thanks so much and I love the site, which will mean that I will use it for making other fantastic recipies.
