My orange jams and strawberry jams with honey are not getting set.. for some reason I don't use pectin (mental block maybe - though I know it's a natural ingredient).. reading a lot of blogs I found this could be the case when lower amount of sweetner is used.. Is this correct? My friends love the saucy consistency so that's not a problem.. but I want to know if this is normal or should I let it boil more?

Strawberry jam: -1kg strawberry + 100 grams water to boil initally to remove seeds (this was for a kid who doesn't like the seeds) -600 grams honey -3 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1kg strawberry + 100 grams water to boil initally to remove seeds (this was for a kid who doesn't like the seeds)
  • 600 grams honey
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice

To start with low flame for 10 minutes and then at a medium flame for 80 minutes.. temperature was 104°C when I switched it off..

Orange : -500 grams orange juice -220 grams honey -1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 500 grams orange juice
  • 220 grams honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Low flame 10 minutes + boil in medium flame for 30 mins - end temp 104.5°C
