  1. This sounds wonderful, and so easy too! I'll have to give it a go! Does it work with other fruit too? :)

  2. I think this was actually a recipe for strawberry jam, so yeah I think it'd work on other fruits too.
    Beautiful new blog design you have!

  3. I just made this and it tastes yummy. I modified a bit. I chopped some as shown, but others I did chop in my blender. Just a bit so I ended up with a more blended mushy texture. So in the end it was more like real jam. Great blog post.

  4. Can't wait to try it again with peaches in a few weeks.
