  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Stem and crush strawberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 3 cups prepared strawberries into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Crush raspberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 1-1/2 cups prepared raspberries into saucepot with strawberries. Crush blueberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Measure exactly 1-1/2 cups prepared blueberries into fruit mixture into saucepot. Stir in lemon juice.
  • Stir pectin into fruit mixture in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 4 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat; skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

How to Measure Precisely

To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cup, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.

Jam or Jelly Didn't Set?

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Very Berry Jam is sweet, yet the raspberries give it a bit of a tang to the taste. The Very Berry Jam is sweet, yet the raspberries give it a bit of a tang to the taste. There is no need to strain the raspberry seeds (unless you don't like them), because with only 1 and 1/2 cups the seeds aren't that noticeable.
