You don't just take any sugar. In Germany, we buy special sugar for making jam. It has pectin in it which makes the fruit you boil firm. With normal sugar you have fruit soup in the end, but no jam.

Here in the US we buy the pectin separately, and yes, you are right, without pectin she would have flavored syrup. It really is not a secret, though. Interesting to learn that you can get sugar with pectin already included.

@GardenGerty So German jam makers are more advanced in the sugar-plus-pectin field than the Americans! :-)

@db20747 Well does the relative run a home business (like selling the jam) or is it for household use only?

The only secret I know is to get somebody that already knows how to make homemade jam or jelly. That is the best way to learn how to make it.

Yes I do, you have to add sugar for a pound of fruits half pound of sugar and if the fruits have no pectin, simply add the juice of lemon.

@db20747 You have to cut the fruits in pieces, add the lemon juice, add the sugar, bring to boil and then cook at very low during at least 40 minutes, until it gets thick.

My cousin makes at home and it's just the puree which is boiled. Then we add sugar syrup to it. It's a simple one...

Never made it. Perfectly willing to eat it though! (And have done.) The only step I could possibly think about there is perhaps straining it through a muslin sheet. Although that will give a very thin jam (I think).
