Hello my Aunties just cleared my uncles house out the freezer was full of soft fruit and a cupboard had tins of treacle in it  could jam be made with treacle instead of  sugar  jezza

I wouldn't think so.  Treacle has such a strong flavour it would overpower the fruit.

Black treacle would be unpleasant.  If itís golden syrup it might be worth an experiment.
