First you place pectin in the gadget, then you add (2 2/3 cups) prepared fruit. After 4 minutes it will beep and you add the sugar at that time. After cooking 21 minutes, it will let you know when it is done. The jam maker has automatic arms and it stirs the jam as it is cooking. I found that the jam to be less thick as I like it to be. The flavor of the jam was excellent! Did I say excellent! It may have been the liquor flavor I enjoyed. LOL
I will show pictures of my canned jam and give you a better recipe after I experiment a while. What a fun way to play!
Blessings to you and yours! Dawnie
