How much sugar do you use in jam making?

michaelnrdx | May 18, 2010 12:48 PM

I've made jam a few times using recipes from the USDA website, but they don't give recipes for all the fruits that are out there. Different fruits require different amounts of sugar. How do I figure out how much sugar to use if I don't have a recipe for a particular fruit? Any general rules of thumb? Or any book or resource I can refer to? I like making jams without adding pectin.
