Tri-Berry Jam Recipe

My mother-in-law and I dreamed up this jam after we'd been picking blueberries one day. She wondered if blueberries, raspberries and strawberries would taste good together. So she made a test batch—and we quickly learned that they definitely did! Then I came up with my own version of the jam. I preserve everything from our garden! —Karen Maerkle, Baltic, Connecticut
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Process: 10 min. YIELD:96 servings


  • 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

  • 2-1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 packages (1-3/4 ounces each) powdered fruit pectin
  • 11 cups sugar


  • 1. Combine the berries and lemon juice in a stockpot; crush fruit slightly. Stir in pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.

"I made this jam for Christmas gift giving. I called it Very Merry Berry Jam and decorated the jars with holly fabric covers. Everyone loved the blend of berries & the color of the jam is beautiful. One guy said he ate the jam every single morning until it was gone. I got my empty jars back from a neighbor with a note inside that said "more, please!". Best compliments on Xmas gifts ever. Thank you TOH and Karen!"

"This was my first attempt at canning and this jam turned out fabulous! I gave a bunch of jars away and everyone asked me for more. Even my picky grandfather said it was the best he's ever had. Will be a recipe I will be making every year!"

"I have been using this recipe for almost 20 years... it is awesome... sometimes when I am short one or the other berries, to add to the other and just make sure I have equal amounts. I know the recipe says to process, but I never have. I put the jam in jars right away and they seal no problem."
