  1. I used this recipe to make nectarine and apple jam. I doubled the strawberry quantity to 1.8kg and used 1/2 cup lemon juice and added 2 large granny smith apples. The sugar remained the same amount. I have been making jam on the stove for over 30 years and this was the first time I used my slow cooker. I did not need to use pectin as the apples and lemon worked a treat. I cooked my jam on high for 4 hours and when it cooled it was a perfect thickness. I will be making my jam this way from now on. Thank you Katrina.

  2. This recipe didnt work for me.. cooked on high for 4 hours
    The strawberries lost alot of their colour and it didnt set as well as hoped. Might try jam aetting sugar next time.

  3. Have used this recipe quite a few times now but with different fruits. Strawberry, strawberry & blueberry, nectarine, nectarine & rhubarb & others! Always a good reliable recipe that gives an end result people rave about!
