Exactly, fudgelady11! I just commented on another person's post. Each thermometer may not be accurate; and like you, I'm a mile above sea level.

What I think is that, when compared to Ree's original recipe, the Food Network "ADMIN CUST SVC" took all of the Ree out of the recipe. So, how can you still call it Ree's recipe? Food Network left the video in, and you can clearly see that there were 7 1/2 cups of the mashed strawberries, more lemon juice based on THAT amount of strawberries, more...

Sorry, I haven't tried these yet.

I just wanted to state that advertising in a recipe review is NOT cool. That's what I think.
