Ingredients

  • 1 cup saskatoon berries or blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 pouch (3 ounces) liquid fruit pectin

Directions

Rinse six 1-cup plastic containers and lids with boiling water. Dry thoroughly. In a large bowl, thoroughly crush all of the berries. Stir in sugar; let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Combine pectin and lemon juice; add to fruit, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.(A few sugar crystals may remain.)
Immediately fill all containers to within 1/2 in. of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers; immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours.
Jam is now ready to use. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze extra containers up to 12 months. Thaw frozen jam in refrigerator before serving. Yield: 6 half-pints.
