Berry Jam

The traditional way to make a fruit jam is to crush the berries and then boil them with sugar. This will release the pectin in the fruit that will then thicken the jam.

You can also cook the berries without crushing them to get a firmer texture – but if you prefer the consistency of jam, crush them before boiling.

Using fruit pectin is the key to making the best jams and jellies. It will thicken the mixture without adding any extra flavor.

Prepare the jars and lids ahead of time by washing them in hot water and drying with a damp dish towel. Fill the jars with the jam, leaving a 1/4 inch of headspace. Seal and process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
