Jam set too hard

I have made 3 batches of jam in my breadmaking machine. All are very tasty but very, very firm! Is anyone able to tell me what to do in future to avoid this problem? Is it a case of too much sugar or too little water or anything else? The breadmaker only makes very small quantities, which is fine for me, but there are only two recipes in the user manual, and I don't want to use too much precious fruit experimenting.

Thank you

More liquid seems to be the simple solution. That's what I'd try first. I guess you could also cook it less.
