Mixed Berry Freezer Jam

Another tried and true experiment.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 cups raspberries
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 3.4 cup water
  • 1 pkg powdered fruit pectin

Either mash berries for a chunkier jam or throw in the blender to make it more smooth. 

Place berries in large bowl, stir in sugar and lemon juice.  Let stand 10 minutes.  Do not forget the lemon juice, doing so will make your jam discolor!!!

In saucepan bring water and pectin to a boil for one minute, stirring constantly, add fruit mixture, stire for three minutes.  DO NOT leave the kitchen while it is boiling!!!

Skim off foam

Pour into jelly jars, I recommend a food funnel.  Cool and cover until set.  Refrigerate or freeze within 24 hours, don’t foget, it will go bad if you do not!!  Refrigerate for up to three weeks or freeze for up to a year.
