Wild Berry Freezer Jam

One year, I decided I wanted to make a wild berry jam but couldn't find a recipe, so I invented my own. — Barbara Hohmann, Petawawa, Ontario
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. + freezing
  • Makes
    6 half-pints

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
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

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.
Editor's Note: If saskatoon berries are not available in your area, add an extra cup of one of the other berries.

    Sounds great and I'd like to try this. Where do you find saskatoon berries?
