{Recipe} Making Mixed Berry Jam

Remember when we went berry picking?  What were going to do with all of these berries?  We froze some of the blueberries, ate a lot of the berries and made mixed berry jam with the rest. Here's how to make it.

Start with your freshly picked fruit.
.
We followed the recipe on the Sure Jell pectin box and didn't use all of this fruit.

Mash up the fruit one cup at a time until you have three cups of fruit.

In another bowl measure out your sugar. It was 5 1/4 cups.


Heat up the water and pectin until it boils, stirring constantly.
Stir the sugar into the crushed fruit until sugar is disolved.
Let it sit about 10 minutes.

Add the pectin to the fruit.
Mix it in and ladle into containers.

It made a lot!
Here comes the money shot, baby!!!
The jam needs to sit out for 24 hours to gel and then can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 weeks or the freezer for up to a year.  We've also made no-cook freezer jam and you can read about it here.

PERMANENT POSIES said...

Well, your berry jam looks great. I made some myself this week. I had some frozen raspberries (picked in NM by my grandchildren) and some frozen strawberries so I made 3 little jars out of that...but it was the cooked kind. I didn't know you could do differently. Since I was canning spiced peaches that day, I already had a water bath going so...I sealed the lids nicely. But, didn't need to because we are already on the 2nd jar...haha. Loved your red post. Check out mine.

Just stopping by from Jenny's Party!! I am late getting around to everyone! Yum, yum!! I just love all of them!
