Reviews for Three-Berry Jam
"I made half a batch of this jam. I have it in the canner now. It tasted good and thickened up nicely. With that half batch I got 4 half pint jars and 2 4 oz jars. I didn't have any raspberries so used blackberries instead."
"Which pectin should be used, Sure Gell or Sure Gell Lower/No sugar? I see this recipe uses 7 cups of sugar and I've seen a similar recipe using 11 cups of pectin. I have berries from the garden in my freezer that I'd love to make a mixed berry jam with! Thanks for your help!"
"This past summer, I made the jam and put it away to give at Christmas. I renamed it Jingle Berry Jam and it was a hit with those I gave it to. Great recipe!"
