K35847 - Ball No-Cook Real Fruit Jam Kit with Accessories
Excited - Great Item
i saw this on in the kitchen with David and it sold out when i went to order it; then i was looking on clearance and saw item. I read reviews and was leary about purchasing this; but i did take the chance and omgoodness, i brought two cans of chunk pineapples and made the jam. i wish i could post a pic, it came out great, i made maple sausage, scrambled eggs and grands biscuits/w jam for breakfast. Yesterday i was in Walmart and went crazy when i saw this product there. i then brought fresh strawberries and mango and purchased more jam containers and came home and made strawberry preserves. i think i started my own show-Jams/Preserves gone wild. LOL i posted my jam pics on facebook and my church sis and daughter in law asking me to make them some. lol
i love it, but the stirring for 3 minutes is a bit much; my arm was so tired :0) but it is worth it at the end.
Excited, Excited, Excited!!!!
I love that all theproduct came in one box and it was easy to make the jam.. I made strawberry and peach... so glad I purchsed them
Love having and using this set! Never thought making jam could be so simple! This would be awesome to do with small kids, too! Growing my own berries, so planning to use this a lot next summer as well!
Was so excited to get this kit. I've made regular cooked peach jam for years so I thought this would be a great time saver. Followed directions exactly, but what I got was six jars of peach soup! It didn;t set up like all the other reviewers say. It will be good on ice cream, but too soupy for jam.
This product is a delight. I grew up canning the old fashioned way. I remember when my mom got into freezer jam and what a time saver it was. I have only done freezer jam since having children. I thought that was easy, then this came along! It doesn't get any easier than this and my 13 year old loves it as well. We made peach jam yesterday and it turned out just perfect. This is a winner!
This product is great, and so easy.... My husband actually made it himself and surprised me with fresh strawberry jam!!! LOVE IT!!
So Much Fun!
When I saw this kit on David's show, I knew I had to get it and don't usually buy the kitchen stuff on T.V.(although, I buy alot of Denim&Co). I can't believe how insanely easy this was to use, after all the years I spent with my mother-in-law canning the old fashion way. We used to get up early in the morning and wash out the jars and set-up everything for the "process". We definitely did not have the kids around. This kit is by far the simplest method I have ever used and it only took me as long as it does to chop and mash some fruit, pour on the lemon juice, sugar and pectin. The funnel makes it no-mess easy as pie. Children could do this! The clean up is a breeze too. It all went in my dishwasher. And don't worry about giving away the "jars" people. Walmart has the 8 oz. and 16 oz. for separate sale, if QVC doesn't offer them. Thanks David and QVC for a great and easy time in the kitchen.
Is it just me
My first try was disappointing. Mine would not 'set up'. Very liquid even tho I stirred as directed. Will try again.
I have never canned anything before in my life but this kit looked easy--and it is! Of course, there is a little trial and error. I made 2 batches each using a 16 oz container of strawberries and a 6 oz container of raspberries. For the first batch I used 1 cup of sugar and 3 tbs pectin. It tasted great albeit a little sweet and did not set up as well as I would liked (it was more like a chunky applesauce). So for the second batch, I used a little less sugar and almost 5 tbs pectin. This batch set up great. The flavor of jam made with fresh fruit is unlike anything I've ever bought in the store. I can't wait to try new flavor combinations. I, also, came across Ball products in a major retail chain store. After seeing the price of the individual items included in this kit, I realized what a great deal this really is!
Wonderful & Easy Jam / RJM In Texas
I have never made jam before, I used Fresh strawberries for my first batch with this kit, it
turned out great & was so easy. I used the instructions on the Pectin jar, I used
3 & 1/3 cups of chopped strawberries, 4 tablespoons of the pectin, & 2/3 of a cup
of sugar, this made 5 of the 8 oz.containers that came with the kit, when filled to
the fill line on each container. Wonderful over vanilla ice cream & Toasted Enlish Muffins.
Great for beginners
I have never made jam before but this kit make it so easy that it turned out great. To make it even easier, I used my Vitamix to chop the peaches. I would have purchased the kit for the funnel alone. It was so easy to pour the jam into the little jars. Made this experience so much easier than I ever anticipated.
Got this and already made fresh strawberry preserves. It was very simple to make the jars of preserves and they are delicious. I liked the kit so much that I went on qvc.com to order several more kits. Unfortunately, the item was on wait list only but I will take my chances and wait. Would recommend this item to anyone who wants to "can" some preserves without all the fuss of traditional "canning."
