    i bought your jam sugar, can I still use this recipe?
    ________________________________________________
    Hello,

    Jam sugar is generally used for making jam with fruits that have a lower pectin content. Damsons have a high pectin content so you don't need to use sugar jam. But, yes if that is the sugar you have it will work fine.

    Happy Baking!

    So far, so good!
    How long must you leave the jam to set in the jar, at room temp?
    ----------------------------------------------
    Hi there, it probably will take the jam at least half a day to cool completely in the jars - hopefully be worth the wait though! Happy baking! :)
