Mixed Berry Jam

Mixed Berry Jam

There is a point when you look at the berries in your refrigerator and they just aren’t the same. I used to get really frustrated. I am always so ambitious when I buy fresh produce at the Farmer’s Market, and disappointed when we cant’t get through them fast enough.

Fortunately, I came up with a fast jam recipe. Most of you have sugar and some form of citrus in your kitchen. Thats all you need.

I try to save my jars, but if you don’t have one, you can grab mason jars, inexpensively, at most grocery stores.

Get your toast ready and enjoy!

This can be made with any berries, really. I like to make a mixed berry jam when my berries are to far gone to eat alone but still good to cook with.
