I wanted to do more then strawberry jam and
therefore, since that is the only fruit in season,
I opted to buy frozen berries...
I KNOW, I KNOW...
BUT WAIT, ALL THESE BERRIES ARENATIVE TO MY AREA!
Here we have the lucious whole strawberries, blueberries,
black raspberries and red raspberries!! They
truly look (and taste) devine for having been frozen!
4 cups of mixed berries (crushed, but not pureed)
7 cups sugar
Bring this to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly.
Quickly stir in 1 pouch of Certo pectin
and bring back to a boil for 1 minute.
Ladle into hot sterilized jars (approx. 8 1/2 pints).
Seal and water bath for 10 minutes.
(Recipe taken from the Certo insert.)
As keeping with my tradition, I put the last bit of
jam or jelly in a coffee mug to be used
right away! VeRy BeRrY yUmMy!
