Jammin'

I had WAY too many berries! I had never made jam before, but thought, how hard could this be? So I got some jars and pectin at the grocery store, and I had sugar and berries. The rest was easy. In less than an hour I had 9 jars of "Frutti di Bosco", or "mixed berry" jam, using up all my strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. That still left lots of blueberries. Brad stopped for more jars, and in the morning there were 9 jars of blueberry jam!

Step 1: Sterilize the jars and lids.

Step 2: Boil the fruit, sugar, and lemon juice.

Step 3: Add pectin.

Step 4: Fill jars, and put them back into the large pot of boiling water for 5-10 minutes.

You have jam! How cool is that!
