"We live on the farm where my husband was raised," shares Rita Pischke of Whitemouth, Manitoba. "Whenever we find wild blueberries nearby, I make this gorgeous ruby-red jam. It's also wonderful as a breakfast sauce."

"First time making freezer (or any) jam... Make sure that your containers are clean and ready BEFORE you start! That said, this recipe was easy to make (I blended rather than mashed) and delicious. Next time, I'll probably use 1/2 to 2/3rds of the recommended sugar.

"I modified this recipe a bit to use up the fruit we had in the house. I used strawberries and blueberries. I also used Splenda and a lot less of it (I would say about 2 1/2 c). Also, instead of fruit pectin, I diced up half a granny smith apple. I didn't use much water at all because I wanted a thicker jam. This recipe froze wonderfully and my family loves it. I am planning on making it with the raspberries! What a wonderful way to make homemade jam and not have to go through the process of canning. Enjoy!"
