My mom shared this recipe with me for Pectin Free Mixed Berry Jam. This recipe is so versatile that you can use any type of berry you want!
While I usually use fresh berries, on a few occasions I used the frozen variety. You just need to defrost them and strain them to limit the amount of juice you are transferring to the pot.
Probably like most of you, I love a good peanut butter and jam sandwich. I like mine on a nicely toasted sesame bagel. If you've seen the prices for jams recently, you will appreciate this cheaper alternative that is super easy to make.
