Wild Berry Freezer Jam Recipe

One year, I decided I wanted to make a wild berry jam but couldn't find a recipe, so I invented my own.—Barbara Hohmann, Petawawa, Ontario

This recipe is:  Quick

48 Servings
Prep: 15 min. + freezing

1 cup saskatoon berries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup strawberries
1 cup blackberries
1 cup blueberries
4 cups sugar
1 pouch (3 ounces) liquid fruit pectin
1 tablespoon lemon juice

In a large bowl, crush all of the berries. Stir in sugar; let stand for 10 minutes. Combine pectin and lemon juice; add to fruit, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.
Pour into jars or freezer containers, leaving 1/2-in. headspace. Cover tightly. Let stand at room temperature until set, up to 24 hours. Freeze or store in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks. Yield: 6 half-pints.

Editor's Note: If saskatoon berries are not available in your area, add an extra cup of one of the other berries.
