Mixed Berry Jam
  • 2 pounds of strawberries
  • 2¼ cups of sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of fresh orange juice
  • 2 pints of blueberries
  • 2 pints of raspberries
  • 1 pint of blackberries
  • 1 small granny apple, diced small
  1. Clean and hull the strawberries. Slice the strawberries into quarters and place into a large heavy bottomed Dutch oven.
  2. Clean the blueberries, raspberries and blackberries and add to the strawberries.
  3. Add the sugar and orange juice and let sit for a few minutes to macerate.
  4. Over a medium-high heat, bring the berries to a boil and stir often.
  5. When the mixture comes to a rolling boil, add the diced apple and stir.
  6. Let the mixture continue at a rolling boil, making sure to skim the foam off of the top until the mixture reaches 220 degrees.
  7. When the jam reaches 220 degrees, turn off the heat and let come to room temperature.
  8. When the mixture is at room temperature, you can now place in jars or containers and place in the fridge. It should keep for a couple weeks.
  9. Enjoy

I’m telling you, there is nothing like getting some homemade jellies and jams and slathering it on a fresh “out of the oven” biscuit or loaf of bread.

What are your favorite types of jams and jellies?

    your jams looks fabulous ! I have tried making strawberry jams and raspberry jams but never a combination. you jam however is inspiring me to try it while the berries are still around.

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
