Easy Mixed-Berry Jam (Gluten-Free)

I call this an “easy” jam, because I bypass the traditional canning process. Since I started dabbling with different fruit combinations, the jams I make are never in my kitchen long enough to need sealing.

This is a great recipe to play around with. I’ve had a lot of fun adding spices, even some port or wine to compliment the flavors of the fruit. Always a thoughtful gift or kitchen staple, find a canning method that works for you if you wish to preserve your jam for long periods of time.

Ingredients:
3 6-ounce containers fresh raspberries
3 6-ounce containers fresh blackberries
1 ½ cups sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest
Clean jars washed in hot water

Directions:
Place a small saucer in the freezer for testing.

Combine with raspberries and blackberries in a large bowl. Mix in sugar, lemon juice and zest. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat and bring fruit mixture to a boil. Mash berries until it becomes a thick puree. Reduce heat to medium and bring to a gentle boil. Stir frequently as jam begins to thicken. Cook for 20-25 minutes.

Remove from heat to test jam. Drop a spoonful on the chilled saucer and place in the freezer for 1 minute. Gently push the edge of the jam with your finger. If it has gelled, the surface will wrinkle slightly. Cook for 3-5 minutes longer if jam is still too runny. Repeat test.

Ladle jam into jars and let cool. Will last for 6-8 weeks in the refrigerator.

This one looks like a good one. I will have to file this recipe away until berry season comes along.

Sure, you should consider getting tested for celiac disease. There is no test for Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance or Sensivity. However, you have to be consuming gluten daily for at least 12 weeks as ALL celiac tests require you to be consuming gluten. Learn more about testing: http:/...

I have two suggestions. First try switching to mostly natural gluten free foods. It makes the diet much easier. Second, i know you said you know the consequences, but really think deeply. in some ways, gluten is poison to your intestines. it literally eats away at it! so next time you think about...
