AMAZING! Is what I would call this jam and jelly maker. I have to say I was a little disappointed when I couldn't use my recipes but once I adjusted my recipes to the principle recipes provided, I have outstanding results! Peach Jam can be made into to peach lavender with just a few adjustments. Pear jam can even more easily be made into pear rosemary jam by just adding a bit of rosemary. Unfortunately the strawberry season is over otherwise I would try my strawberry margarita twist on their strawberry jam.

Even better, little mess and no burns! I love this machine, I can't wait to see how the fair judges rate the jams and jellies. Since posting this review, I won Grand Champion at the county fair for the raspberry jam. Is this cheating???

Since posting this review, I have used the machine many, many times and have adapted these recipes that I want to share.

As with the strawberry jam options in the recipe booklet, make other options. Just follow the basic recipe and make the adjustments from your favorite recipies. I generally make the low sugar option:

Peach Lavendar Jam:

Steap 2 Tbls. lavendar buds for 20 minutes in 1.3 cup boiling water. Drain and reserve water (and half the buds, if desired). I use a coffee filter to strain. Put the reserved water (and buds) into the maker when you add the peaches.

Peach Amaretto Jam:

Add 2 Tbls. of Amaretto liquor after the peach jam after the machine has signaled that the jam is complete.

Pear Rosemary:

Add 2 tsp. finely chopped rosemary when adding the pears to the machine. I have also put in one cup of honey in place of one cup of sugar, which gives the result more like the stove top version. The gel is slightly softer, but still yummy.

This is information I'd have liked before I made my decision on these automated jammers. (I've become a fan, by the way.) This is half-review, half-recommendation for how to use these jammers to maximize yield.

I BOUGHT TWO AND COMPARED...

I bought 2 auto-jammers and ran them side by side for a month. All told, I made 12 dozen half-pints via auto-jammer, and 12 dozen half-pints of the same jams, using the traditional stove-top method. I looked for differences in quality, pectin-sugar ratios, time, and/or effort.

I MADE THESE JAMS

I made these jams in both auto-jammers and using the traditional stove-top method:

Raspberry
Raspberry Peach
Apricot-Nectarine
Apricot-Nectarine with hint of Raspberry
Blueberry-Kiwi-Raspberry
Blueberry-Kiwi-Apricot
Strawberry-Blueberry
Strawberry-Marguarita
Strawberry-Raspberry
Strawberry-Apricot
Rockin' Apricot (with tart White Peach)

(I made other jams but didn't compare them side by side by method.)

Here's the upshot of all that experimentation:

BATCH SIZE & BOIL OVERS.

I experimented with these batch sizes:

1.5x batch: Easy peasy. No boilovers with any fruits.

2x batch: Watch the pot closely in the last few minutes -- that's when the foam typically starts, and the volume rises. If you see an impending boil over, just lift the lid for 1 to 4 seconds. This typically reduces the foam immediately. With some fruits, you might need to stir a bit to keep the foam down for the last few seconds. When working solely with apricots, nectarines, and peaches, I had a volume rise each time that required a fast response and at least 1 minute of stirring to keep the foam down and prevent that boil over.

I am a big sucker for kitchen gadgets. I just love them. Unfortunately, we don't have unlimited storage space (who does?) and so if I get a new gadget, an old one has to go, and that means the new one better deliver. I got this (and donated an old crock-pot to my son's school) because I have recently started preserving, and wanted to see if it really made the jam process easier. I think it does! And I think you will too!

Here are the differences in processes between the first time I made jam without the machine, and then with the machine:

Making jam WITHOUT JAM MAKER:
- Mash up fruit.
- Put in pan.
- Stir in pectin and then sugar.
- Watch like a hawk to make sure mixture doesn't boil over.
- Mixture boils over anyway. Oops.
- Spend 15 minutes cleaning up red-hot, sticky strawberry jam from all over the stovetop. Burn self. Curse loudly. Don't get all the jam cleaned up, bits of sticky jam will adhere to things that come near the stove for several days afterward.
- Put jam back on stove. Near boil-overs happen several more times, despite low heat on burner. Skim foam. Skim foam. Skim foam. Finally jam is at gelling point.
- Process jam in jars.
- Spend 20 minutes soaking and scrubbing jam-making pot that has crusty, sticky, scummy jam on it. Break fingernails. Curse loudly.

Making jam WITH JAM MAKER
- Mash up fruit.
- Put in maker. Sprinkle pectin on top.
- Turn on machine. Wait for four-minute beep. Add sugar.
- Go watch Breaking Bad on DVR for 17 minutes.
- Jam maker beeps, jam is done! Skim small amount of foam.
- Process jam in jars.
- Pan, lid and stirrer from jam maker clean up in about 5 minutes.

See? So much easier. Much less cursing.
