I subtracted one teaspoon of water and added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. I made no other changes or substitutions. This turned out absolutely perfect. I've been wanting to try low sugar jam for a while now (because my family eats an obscene amount of jam) and you know, it was just as good. My oldest child said that he preferred it "less sweet".

so easy and great strawberry taste. I have never made jam before as I thought you needed way more berries. Not so! I will definately make this again An added note I did add the lemon juice, 2not 3 teasp per 2 half pint batch.
