I found the recipe to be lacking a bit of the sweetness I was craving. So you can add either a bit more maple syrup, or raw honey to the recipe prior to refrigerating, if needed.
The jam can be made with a variety of fruit. Same directions as above, however the amount of water will vary depending on the type of fruit. Add more water if the sauce pan gets too dry.
The jam is fantastic on toast or as fruit dip.
