I made strawberry freezer jam with surejell. I followed the recipe but each of the 2 batches were too thin. Did not set up properly. What went wrong?
Answering the question why the strawberry freezer jam didn’t set properly. Add 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice to the recipe. It doesn’t change the taste at all and sets the jam every time! Good luck!
