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.

Hi, I?m new to this forum. I?m not a native English speaker so sorry if my English is not perfect :-) For the past 2,5 years (at least) I?ve had typical symptoms of celiac disease.* When I realized this (too late I guess) I went gluten free immediately. So I?ve been gluten-free for approx. ...

I just re-read your original post and I am more convinced than ever that it's Candida. The rashes and feeling like something is stuck in her throat are both things I have been very familiar with! Look in her throat with a light and see if you can see any white patches of any kind. Candida has ...

If I thought celiac was what I had, it would be easier for me to get myself into ketosis. Just by saying hey there's a reason you should do this. Gluten intolerance is one thing, knowing what's wrong with me would be another. For people with fears like mine, therapy doesn't work. I have tri...
