Ready to have fresh jam in your fridge and freezer in 30 minutes? I never knew that making jam could be so easy. I used Ball Real Fruit Instant Pectin and in about a half an hour, I had 3 jars of this wonderfully, fresh, tasty jam!
The strawberries were fresh, but frozen over the summer when I purchased way too much at one point. The blackberries were purchased frozen and can be omitted (or substituted!) if you don’t care for them. They definitely gave this jam a more tart flavor. You’ll need 2 1/2 cups of whichever fruit you choose, defrosted if you are using frozen.
I love the color! My kids love to just slather it on a bagel (toasted or not) or any kind of good bread for breakfast or a snack.
My jars are Weck, 12 oz. I kept one in the fridge and the other 2 in the freezer (they will keep up to a year). Such little effort for so much product – would make a great neighbor or teacher gift!
