Strawberry Jam in a Jiffy

Orange Blueberry Freezer Jam

This quick jam lets me savor the great taste of fresh-picked blueberries no matter the season, but I have to fight my kids for them since they start eating them the minute I bring them in the house. —Mark Morgan, Waterford, Wisconsin

Roasted Beet Jam

This spicy jam recipe is from my Russian grandmother, who had no written recipes and who gave a few jars of the jam as gifts. I re-created the recipe from memory and think of her each time I prepare it. If you want to increase the yield, it's easy to double the recipe. I like to serve the jam on buttered toast or with cream cheese on toasted pita. The jars, which are dark red from the beets, make a welcome gift.—Susan Asanovic, Wilton, Connecticut

Pineapple Kiwi Jam

Freezer Raspberry Sauce

This is a great topping for ice cream, and—since it's thicker than sweetened berries—it's nice over sponge cake or shortcake, too. My family especially enjoys spreading with sour cream and plain yogurt over waffles. In fact, no one ever asks for maple syrup anymore! —Katie Koziolek, Hartland, Minnesota
